Like most movies, Krrish 3 too is facing its set of hurdles before the film's release. This Hrithik Roshan movie which is set to release on November is tangled in a copyright related issue. A writer from Madhya Pradesh on Monday moved the Bombay High Court alleging copyright violation of the script of Krrish 3 and seeking a stay on the all India release of the film unless he was given a compensation of Rs two crore.
Uday Singh Rajput, a resident of Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh, filed a petition claiming he had written the script titled Krrish 2. However, he said he was being denied the credit for writing the story.
Meanwhile, Rakesh Roshan, who is the producer of Krrish 3, has also filed a caveat in the High Court urging that no relief should be granted to Uday Singh Rajput unless he (Rakesh Roshan) is heard in the matter. Both the applications would be heard today (October 29) by Justice S J Kathawala.
The petitioner claims that he had even registered his script titled Krrish 2 with the Film Writers Association on July 23, 2008. Thereafter, he met Roshan and gave him the script. Roshan promised to pay him if the script was used.
The petitioner further alleged Roshan had advertised in electronic media that he himself was the story writer of Krrish 3, although before the court in his application Roshan has stated that the story was written by Rubin Bhatt and the script was registered on March 3, 2011. We will update you with the latest news soon after the hearing which will be held today.
