Megastar Amitabh Bachchan starrer Jhund will not be released for the time being after the Supreme Court on November 18 declined to lift the stay granted by the civil court and Telangana High Court against the release of the movie. A bench of Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian dismissed the appeal filed by petitioner Super Cassettes Industries (T Series) against the October 19 order of the high court which had refused to interfere with the trial court order restraining the release of the movie in India as well as abroad.
The film, based on the life of Vijay Barse, the founder of NGO Slum Soccer, was scheduled to be released this month on OTT platform Amazon Prime. The petition filed by a Hyderabad-based short-film maker Nandi Chinni Kumar has alleged copyright infringement against the filmmaker, whether true life events of a real person which are already in the public domain can be considered ‘property’ which can be brought and sold and whether the same will be entitled to copyright protection.
