Producer Geetha Krishna has slammed the reports that his film Coffee Shop is a dubbed movie. He says that the reports are baseless rumours and Coffee Shop is an original film. He has already approached the court for seeking justice against stopping its publicity and got judgment passed on his side.
A few months ago, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerece (KFCC) had issued the publicity clearance to the movie Coffee Shop. But the KFCC had recently sent a notice to newspapers like Udayavani and Kannada Prabha to restrain publishing the advertisement of the film after receiving a complaint saying that it is a dubbed movie.
Geetha Krishna appealed a local court in Bangalore, which has passed the judgment in favour of him. "The court has passed judgement favouring me after perusing all the objections. I had filed an affidavit and later the Secretary of the KFCC has also filed an affidavit giving an assurance that they will not be in anyway act to hamper the release or promotion of the film," the Chitraloka.com quotes him as saying.
However, the producer claims that he has always been against remakes and dubbed films. He had even hit a big controversy in the Telugu film industry when he raised his voice against the remake and dubbing culture. Now, he is very upset with the false reports that his film Coffee Shop is a dubbed movie. Addressing the press meet on Monday, Geetha Krishna said, “Coffee Shop is not a dubbed movie. It is an original film."
