Bollywood is different from what it used to be earlier. Now, the professionalism that the industrywallas have doesn’t permit them to fight their battle in public. They no more want the masses to be the judges, and prefer to sort their issues legally than amicably. And so here is a list of six recent battles that were, or are going to be fought in court:
It all started when the news of Kangana’s ouster from Aashiqui 3 broke out. She in aninterview was asked about the same, and in her reply she pointed out at Hrithik by calling him a silly ex who is spreading rumours. This didn’t go well down with the actor, and instead he took to Twitter and tweeted that he would rather date a Pope. The affair that remained under wraps was now out in public. The two then decided to fight the battle legally with Hrithik filing a defamation case against Kangana.
The two were now washing their dirty linen in public, nothing was anymore a secret. Hrithik alleged that he received 1,439 mails from Kangana which were mostly absurd and personal. Hrithik also went on to say that Kangana was suffering from Asperger’s syndrome. Kangana went on to rubbish all this until newspapers printed the emails conversation between the two. Hrithik went on to say that Kangana was indeed talking to an imposter, which was later investigated and found to be true. The fight is ongoing, and the last word will of course be of the judiciary.
Kriti, a short film by Shirish Kunder starring Radhika Apte, Manoj Bajpayee, and Neha Sharma was uploaded on YouTube six days ago. The film was appreciated for an unusual and a never-seen-before concept. As the film started garnering applauds on social media, Shirish was accused by Aneel Neupane alleging he stole the plot from Neupane’s film Bob. This didn’t go too well down the many people who liked Kriti. Shirish in the wake of the issue resorted to legal action against Neupane.
According to Shirish the film was made back in February 2016, and it was due to post-production that the film was released in June. Whereas, Neupane claimed that Bob was completed in October 2015, and he shared it on Vimeo only with a few close friends. Kunder then sent Neupane a legal notice demanding an apology, and refrains him from making any comments on Kriti. He also demanded that BOB should be taken takes down from the internet immediately.
It all started when KRK made a comment on Twitter after watching Vikram’s directorial Love Games. The two had a small Twitter rant, but all was forgotten until KRK reviewed 1920 London. In his review he made some rather personal remarks on the actress of the film Meera Chopra, he went on to allege that Vikram and Meera’s relation is rather personal than professional. This really irked the filmmaker as he had nothing to do with the film really. Vikram then sought legal measures to tackle the remarks and rumours that were now spreading.
He filed a case of defamation against KRK, but there was no stopping to KRK as he went on to make remarks and abuse Vikram on Twitter. Then finally Vikram posted an open letter on Facebook about the timeline of what led him to file a case against KRK. The case is an eye opener for many who till now treated KRK’s tweets as rather funny or immature.
This film is sure going to find its way into the history of Hindi cinema, and it was surely not for the film but for the legal battle Anurag fought against CBFC (Censor Board For Film Certification). Udta Punjab was suggested 89 cuts from the CBFC, and the title too was asked to be changed. This led Anurag to make an appeal to the High Court against the cuts suggested by the CBFC. The High Court heard both the sides of the story, and made a statement in favour of the feeedom oif speech and expression of the filmmakers. The Court went on to say that the film depicted reality, and thus suggested that only one cut to be made in the film.
Firoz Nadiadwala found himself in a soup when financer Nirmal Kumar Maheshwari filed a case against him in a cheque bounce case. According to Nirmal, Firoz had borrowed two crores from him in 2011 for a film, Power, which didn’t see the light of the day. Firoz agreed to pay 5.5 crores to Maheshwari before the release of his next film. After Firoz failed to pay the dues, Maheshwari had to resort to legal measures to get back his money. Firoz later gave him a cheque which bounced. And thus, an arrest warrant was issued against the filmmaker.
Firoz is right now out on bail, but has refused to make any comment regarding the same.
June 13 finally saw Karishma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur’s divorce come through, a wait that lasted 2 years was finally over. The two filed for divorce in 2014, but couldn’t come on a common ground in matters of their children’s custody. Karishma then went on to file a case of harassment against Sunjay and his mother, alleging that he married her because of her celebrity status. While Sunjay called his marriage a rebound after Karishma’s break-up with Abhishek Bachchan. The couple finally came to common ground, and the court asked them to settle the matter amicably. The two now have parted ways and are happy in their respective lives.
Thane police has filed a charge sheet in the Ephedrine drug bust case where in an arrest warrant was issued against Mamta Kulkarni and her boyfriend Vicky Goswami. Ephedrine is a controlled drug that is used in medicines, but can also be used to make Crystal Meth. While Manoj Jain, one of the directors of Avon Lifesciences Ltd. is named the mastermind behind the scam. The police also has an arrest warrant against Mamta and Vicky for their involvement in the scam.
