HC rules against Zee in 'Kanhaiyya' case

MUMBAI: The Mumbai High Court has ruled against Zee Telefilms restraining it from airing its beleagured Sunday morning show Kanhaiyya.

The division bench of Justice AP Shah and Justice Deshmukh of the Bombay High Court on Thursday (27 March) dismissed the appeal filed by Zee Telefilms Limited against a single judge's order restraining the telecast of the serial.

Kanhaiyya has been swimming in troubled waters ever since its first proposed launch on 9 March. After Sundial Communication took the channel to court for copyright violations, alleging that Zee had appropriated its original idea from a 52-episode serial called Krish Kanhaiyya. The serial did launch on 16 March, after the division bench stayed an ad interim injunction. The stay was however, vacated after the judges viewed episodes of both Kanhaiyya and Krish Kanhaiya and the serial was not telecast on 23 March. The final verdict was delivered Thursday.

Kanhaiyya was part of a slew of shows Zee had lined to beef up its Sunday morning band. The dash of religion, mixed with family drama was expected to pull in viewers from diverse age groups.
