Bollywood producer Ekta Kapoor has won a battle against the makers of Veena Malik starrer Kannada movie Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga! The dispute over the title of 'Dirty Picture' was in the court and now the verdict has been delivered, which has given a favourable result to Ekta, the producer of Bollywood film The Dirty Picture.
A Mumbai court has asked the Kannada filmmakers not to use 'Dirty Picture' in the title, as it is branded by the Ekta Kapoor's production house in The Dirty Picture. Adding to that the Kannada movie too is made on yesteryear sex siren Silk Smitha, which went against the makers of the Veena Malik starrer movie.
In November 2011, the argument put up by Ekta Kapoor's legal counsel was that The Dirty Picture has a good brand value in the market and he accused that the Kannada filmmakers were attempting to use this to gain a brand for their film. He also claimed that the director of Veena Malik starrer film has not shared their script even after sending several notices. This made the Mumbai High Court to restrain the use of title Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga.
