Bombay High Court petitioned to put a stay order on Krrish
The Roshans are busy gearing up for the release of their 50 crore film Krrish on 23 June. The sci-fi film starring Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra is being touted as one of the most expensive films in the industry with extremely high budget special effects. Hrithik Roshan is also hoping that the film will be a hit at the box-office as this is his only release after a long hiatus. Even while tickets for Krrish are fast being sold, petitioner Suresh Laxmi Garg has moved the Bombay High Court to put a stay order on the release of the film.
Krrish has been produced and directed by Rakesh Roshan. However according to a petition, industrialist Guru Swaroop Srivastav has also invested around 35 crores in the film. Unfortunately Swaroop has been booked by the Economic Offenses Wing on the charges of forgery. Hence according to petitioner Garg, Swaroop should not have been allowed to invest such a huge amount of money in an Indian enterprise.
Petitioner Garg has filed a PIL in the Bombay High Court asking the police to investigate the matter of Swaroop’s investment in the film Krrish further. He has also petitioned the Court to put a stay order on the film until the investigations by the police are completed.
Priyanka Chopra’s ex-secretary had earlier threatened to put a stay order on the film Krrish, questioning the investment made by industrialist Swaroop. Prakash Jaju ex-secretary of Priyanka Chopra had a fallout with the actress, as according to him he has still not been paid his dues amounting to approximately Rs 1 crore. In another controversy for the film Krrish, director Rakesh Roshan has been accused of plagiarizing the script from another writer-filmmaker.
Well it seems that Krrish is creating quite a controversy, even before its release. A hearing regarding the petition will be heard in a day’s time to decide the fate of the film.
