SC extends stay on 'Karishma' telecast

NEW DELHI: In a ruling today, the Supreme Court confirmed the stay on further telecast of Karishma - The Miracles of Destiny.

The SC had, on Monday evening, stayed the telecast of the second episode, soon after Sahara managed to get the stay imposed by the Kolkata High Court vacated. The vacation of the stay enabled the channel to proceed as per schedule with the launch episode, but Tuesday's episode could not be telecast, pending the SC hearing. 

"We will have to debate our next move," Sahara Media and Entertainment head Sumit Roy told indiantelevision.com this afternoon. 

New York based author Barbara Taylor Bradford, through her solicitor Fox and Mandal, had filed an appeal before the vacation bench of the Supreme Court on late Monday evening, alleging copyright infringement of her 1979 novel A Woman of Substance. The bench heard the Special Leave Petition and in an ex-parte order stayed the airing of the serial despite the previous order of the Kolkata High Court division bench issued earlier during the day.

Like on Tuesday, Sahara may end up showing old episodes of Kadam at 9.30 pm today too. Unless of course, there's a miracle by then.
