Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor are all set for the release of their forthcoming film Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Recently the film faced a legal soup after a Ranchi-based writer Vishal Singh approached the state court and claimed that his story Punni Rani’s content was used in the film without mentioning in the credits.
The writer had even sought a stay on the upcoming family drama’s release, but it has now been rejected by the court.
Ranchi court refuses to hold the release of Jug Jugg Jeeyo
On June 23, 2022, the Ranchi court refused to put a stay on Jug Jugg Jeeyo after a writer alleged that the makers of the film have used one of his stories’ content in the upcoming flick. Earlier, the court even asked the makers for the film’s screening ahead of its theatrical release after which Dharma Production had filed a petition requesting not to show the file to Vishal Singh. Though the film was to be screened on June 21, it didn’t take place, stated the petitioner’s lawyer.
