Bombay High Court has denied a stay on Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey; the film will be released in theatres on April 22.
Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, will be released on time despite a lawsuit filed by a writer called Rupesh Jaiswal alleging copyright infringement over the narrative.
The Bombay High Court has refused a stay on the film, which is scheduled to be released in theatres on April 22.
JERSEY RELEASE ORDERED BY COURT PER SCHEDULE
Jersey’s filmmakers delayed the film’s release by a week after learning that a lawsuit had been launched against it. Rupesh Jaiswal, a writer, alleged that the premise, narrative, and idea of his 2007 script were unlawfully plagiarised in the Telugu and Hindi films Jersey.
The Bombay High Court, however, refused the stay and declared that Shahid’s Jersey will be released on April 22.
Producer Aman Gill stated that they were all set to release the film Jersey this holiday weekend, but they didn’t want to go ahead and prepare a release until the courts gave them a favourable order, and with a hearing scheduled for Wednesday (April 13), they didn’t have time to plan for a Thursday release, so they decided to postpone the release by a week to April 22 until they received such an order.
Yesterday, on Wednesday, they received a favourable order, paving the door for their release next week, on April 22.
