Jugjugg Jeeyo: Ranchi Court refuses to stay release of movie in copyright infringement suit

Socio Legal Corp

Written By- Pretika Tiwari

The petitioner, Vishal Singh, claimed that his copyright over the story ‘Bunny Rani’ had been infringed by the defendants when they made the film, Jugjugg Jeeyo. In his submission, Mr Singh, stated that after watching the trailer of the film, it is evident that the production company has wrongly used his story. And he demanded a compensation of rupees 1.5 crores for such infringement and also requested an interim stay on the release of the film. The production company, on the other hand, argued that there is no prima facie case. A total sum of rupees 13.95 crores has been spent in making the film, and therefore, they will suffer an irreparable loss if the release stays. It was submitted before the court that along with 13.95 crore rupees, a sum of rupees 6.05 crore had been spent on the film’s distribution.
