High Court gave go ahead to 'Krrish 3' release
The Bombay High Court on Tuesday rejected the plea by Madhya Pradesh based scriptwriter Uday Singh Rajput and gave a go ahead to the release of ‘Krrish 3’ which is all set to release on 1st November.
The court said that the petition filed by Uday Singh was dishonest and incorrect and so no relief would be given to him. Justice S Kathawala noticed that the plea sent to him by Uday Singh did not match with his statement while he was in the witness box. The producer and the director of ‘Krrish 3’, Rakesh Roshan also provided the court with a copy of the flight ticket which confirmed that the director was not present in the country during the time Uday Singh claimed to have met him.
The court hence gave a verdict that the claims made by the script writer was false and was meant to malign the image of the director and his upcoming movie.
Uday Singh Rajput had earlier filed a petition in the High Court alleging that the producer of the movie Rakesh Roshan had taken the script from him for Rs. 50 lakhs. He promised to pay him 1.5 crores if he used the script. The script was given to him during ‘Krrish 2’. However, Rakesh Roshan used the script during ‘Krrish 3’ and did not pay compensation to the script writer.
Uday Singh said, “Roshan agreed to pay 50 lakh first and 1.5 crore was promised after the release of the film.”
He also added, “The plaintiff has written the original story of Krrish 2 but it was stolen and manipulated by Rakesh Roshan to suit their purpose and he even used the same names of all characters including the theory of mutants in the new film.”
‘Krrish 3’ is a science fiction movie starring Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi are playing the roles of antagonists. The movie is the most ambitious project from the Roshans. This movie is the third offering from the ‘Krrish’ series. The earlier offerings were ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Krrish 2’.
The movie has created a lot of buzz before its release. The trailer of the movie was very well received by the viewers. Also, ‘Krrish’ is very famous among children and youths. The superhero movie is strategically released just before the Diwali holiday.
