Salman Khan, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor and Prabhudheva got major relief after the Allahabad High Court put a stay on the bailable warrant issued against them. The warrant was issued against the stars by the Meerut Court for copyright infringement. According to reports, Salman Khan’s hit film – Wanted (2009) was copied from a script written by a writer from the city. Birbal Singh Rana had written a script titled – Raja Bhai IPS, whose story is very similar to what you saw in Wanted. Birbal had claimed that he has a copyright for the story and Boney Kapoor had stolen his story. The Allahabad High Court heard the case on March 28, put a stay on the warrant and dismissed the hearing till March 30.
For those of you who don’t know about this case, before the release of Wanted, Birbal had registered a case in the Meerut court on July 17, 2010. After the actor and producers failed to appear in court, the judge issued a bailable warrant against the stars. The lawyers of the artistes appealed against this warrant in the Allahabad High Court, which heard the case on March 28, 2017. The High Court put a stay on the warrant and agreed to listen to both the parties on March 30.
