Founded and chaired by Subhash Ghai, Mukta Arts Ltd. has confirmed that they will be filing an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court's order on the joint venture between Mukta Arts and Filmcity Mumbai, which led to the formation of Whistling Woods International.
In 2000, Whistling Woods International - Institute for Film Communication Animation and Media Arts, Mumbai was established through a joint venture between Mukta Arts Limited and Filmcity Mumbai, under which Filmcity was supposed to bring in 20 acres of land as its share of the equity and Mukta Arts was to bring in cash resources towards setup of a Film & Media Institute. CHECK OUT: Subhash Ghai- We will appeal to the Supreme Court
Whistling Woods commenced operations in 2006 and over the past 6 years has built its brand as one of the best film schools in India, and has even been listed as one of the ten best film schools in the world by The Hollywood Reporter.
The court has stayed its order for a period of 8 weeks. The order requires WWI to surrender 14.5 acres currently not in use while continuing operations for two more years. Mukta Arts is aggrieved by the order and is confident that it will get due justice in the Supreme court as Mukta Arts was not responsible for any procedural lapses and has delivered more than its promise under the agreement.
Subhash Ghai said, ''I am a filmmaker and committed to education of the next generation. I have acted in good faith and in the interest of education at large. I have faith in the judicial system and I am confident that I will get justice in the Supreme Court. Whistling Woods is supported by the entire film and media industry and is appreciated globally as well. I will continue to fight for what I believe is right for the next generation of the Indian media & entertainment industry.''
