HC asks Jannat 2 producers to deposit Rs 1 mn in court

MUMBAI: The Bombay HC has asked producers Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt of Vishesh Films to deposit Rs 1 million in the court if they want to go ahead with the TV release of their film Jannat 2.

The HC also asked the producers to submit the DVD of their film to enable the judges to see for themselves whether there were any similarities between the film and a script by petitioner Kapil Chopra, which he claimed he had sent to the film‘s director Kunal Deshmukh and his 150-page script registered in 2008 by the Film Writers Association.

Commenting on Chopra‘s lawyer Rashmin Khandekar‘s contention that the script writer ought to be compensated for his efforts, the producers have denied there was any similarity between the two scripts.

When asked to comment on the matter, he promptly replied, "I can‘t say anything on this as the matter is subjudice."

Meanwhile, the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) has finally given a clean chit to The Dirty Picture for telecast after nearly 100 cuts. With this, the controversial national award winning film, which had been banned from being screened on TV before 11 pm, has now got the nod for general viewing.

Sony TV had asked producers Balaji Motion Pictures to go for more cuts to ensure that the film could be telecast during prime time.
