Producer N R Pachisia through his company NRP Entertainment has filed a suit against Mr. Deepak Shivdasani , ex censor board chief Mr Pahlaj Nihalani and others who have been named as defendants in the suit filed yesterday before the Hon’ble Mumbai High Court.
PAHLAJ NIHALANI AND JULIE 2
The suit is filed for trademark and copyright infringement being committed by the above said Defendants in respect of the movie JULIE 2 which is due to release on 6th October.
Seeking an injunction on JULIE 2 the complaint alleges that the above said defendants in spite of written undertakings given to NR Pachsia and various Film bodies have illegally and unethically gone ahead and produced a film using the title JULIE 2 and promoted it as a sequel to his earlier movie JULIE starring Neha Dhupia released in 2004 without permission and license.
The suit also alleges that Mr. Deepak Shivdasani has also used identical looking posters/trailer from the original JULIE to obviously mislead the public by associating with N R Pachisia's Film to gain mileage and publicity.
The suit is filed to initiate criminal proceedings for cheating and copyright infringement against Pahlaj Nihalani and Deepak Shivdasani.
