It’s very common for films to land in a legal soup these days. Ranveer Singh’s Simmba has joined the bandwagon too. The reason is that the makers have infringed the trademark of a beverage company. The Delhi High Court has asked Rohit Shetty’s production house to respond to the allegations. Justice Pratibha M Singh has asked the team to respond or else the matter will be heard in the Court on December 4.
The Court order says, “It has also been impressed upon the counsel for the defendant (Rohit Shetty Picturez) that the defendant ought to respond to the plaintiff’s (Sona Beverages) notice and also explore the possibility of an arrangement being entered into, failing which, on the next date, the matter will be heard.”
Let’s hope the matter is resolved and the film is allowed a smooth release.
