Zee's 'Kanhaiyya' gets a breather from SC

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court has given temporary relief to Zee's beleaguered Sunday morning show Kanhaiyya.

Last weekend, the apex court temporarily set aside the stay on telecast of the serial imposed by the Mumbai High Court last Thursday, allowing Zee to air the second episode yesterday morning at 9:30 am.

The Supreme Court will now decide Kanhaiyya's fate on 4 April. Zee officials however prefer to remain tightlipped about the issue.

A quick recap of the legal tussle thus far: 

Production company Sundial Communications approached the court on 28 February and filed a suit alleging copyright violation. The scheduled launch on 9 March was subsequently stalled after Justice SA Bobde passed an interim injunction on 7 March, restraining Zee from going ahead with the telecast of Kanhaiyya.

Zee then moved the division bench comprising Justice AP Shah and Justice DK Deshmukh and succeeded in getting a stay on the injunction, and aired the first episode on 16 March. Later however, the same bench, after a preview session of both the shows, vacated the stay on the injunction.

The channel was unable to air the second episode on 23 March but managed to get interim relief from the Supreme Court and aired the same on 30 March.
