The Bombay High Court last month refused to grant an interim injunction in favour of the makers of the upcoming Bollywood film Veere Di Wedding .

The plaintiffs, Anil Kapoor Film Co Pvt Ltd, claimed it had rights to the title of the Sonam and Kareena Kapoor starrer, which is slated for release later this year.

Represented by Senior Advocate Ravi Kadam , who was briefed by Naik Naik & Co , the plaintiff sought an injunction against the defendants, who were going to release a film titled ‘Veerey Ki Wedding’, on the grounds of passing off. Dr. Abhinav Chandrachud , briefed by AS Khan & Associates , appeared for the defendants.

At the outset, Justice GS Patel expressed his displeasure at the plaintiff’s move to seek ad-interim relief through a Letters Patent leave application, this despite the Court having denied circulation (urgent hearing) for interim orders. Pointing to these “most irregular circumstances”, Justice Patel noted,

“Once I had declined to grant circulation, the Plaintiff ought not to have made this application today at all. This is unfair to the other side and it is unfair to the Court. I have allowed Mr Kadam for the Plaintiffs to proceed only because he insists there is great urgency.”
