High Court Deems Ajay Devgn’s Plea Against SRK’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ Urgent!
das | November 3, 2012, 10:22 AM | 29 comments | 1 views


The Delhi High Court Friday asked the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to “urgently” pass the order on a plea filed by actor Ajay Devgn against the alleged monopolistic practices adopted by Yash Raj Films in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.

Yash Raj Films (YRF), the production house owned by late Yash Chopra, allegedly abused its dominant position by asking exhibitors to dedicate more screens to their upcoming release “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” than for his “Son of Sardaar”, Devgn said in a complaint to the CCI.

“Jab Tak Hai Jaan” (starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma) and “Son Of Sardaar” (starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt) are scheduled for release this Diwali Nov 13.

Hearing the plea of Devgn, Justice Rajiv Shakdher asked the CCI to hear the plea and pass the order urgently.

Advocate Rajiv Nayyar, representing Devgn, told the court that arguments in the case have been heard by the CCI.

Nayyar said: “Petitioner (Devgn) would require some time to enter into some agreement with exhibitors before its release and the advance booking of the petitioner’s film will commence from tomorrow (Nov 3) but the commission is not listing the matter in spite of the urgency.”

    @Javeed
    Why do you sound so frustated? Ofcourse i haven’t, and i hope you haven’t in jthj :P but We all are here investing our time and focus as movie buffs.
    So, its about the choices we make and i am very happy i chose SOS :D
    Honesty prevails.

  5. wall-D

    i chose honest and daring side, we need more ppl like Ajay devgn to eradicate monopoly and injustice in bollywood. Best of luck to him and Son of Sardar. Teach yrf a strong lesson.

  6. Serenzy

    MODS,

    Why Can’t You Keep two Twitter Feeds OR Hashtag Both #JTHJ and #SOS…?

    This is Playing Unfair Even Before the Start.

    :D

      ”This is Playing Unfair Even Before the Start”
      ha ha ha
      Jab YRF wahn unfair kr rha ajay ke sath ,then Yahan per to Votes per twitter Feeds based hai.

  7. javeed

    Wall-D, Why should I be frustrated? I know how much honest you are.Anyway,there is no need to jump into air for you as this is just a publicity stunt done by honest Ajay Devgan. The fact is that on 13th your frustration level is gonna touch sky.

    This is interesting, never knew about this law before .. thanks SOS for this eye opening info. Will be interesting to see final judgement.

    1. SCHOLES

      final judgement might not even come and matter might become influctious.

      The requirement is move at break neck speed, engage the best lawyers, and move from one forum to another, if anyhow SOS fails to get any injunction or favourable order in few days, the matter is gone case, and then it will be just another matter.

      Law helps the vigilant.

      If on record YRF can show ADF knew since 2-3 months about situation, and they approached court late…. that might affect the judicial mind.

  9. Khan.1

    Lol at MODS. When #JTHJ is trending more than anything on NG than too SOS is getting the twitter space. Very good.

  10. javeed

    There is no problem in JTHJ vs SOS competition but the real worry is when K786 will crush Taalash.The later looks very weak and stale and the former looks massy one plus its music has grown also.So my humble request to all Tillu fans is to start thinking for Taalash instead of JTHJ.

  11. javeed

    JTHJ has won its battle before its release which is evident from Ajay’s frustration and acts.Now the problem is only for Taalash.

  12. Tango

    Chalo- Let the law take it’s own course.

    The court has just told the Competition Commission of India to expedite.

  13. danish

    maza to tab aaye jab monday ko exhibitors ‘jab tak hai gxxnd’ hata ke apne aap son of sardar lagaayein. without any intervention from competition commission or court.

  14. SCHOLES

    ” Expedite ” alone is not a good order for interest of SOS.

    It should have said decide within a 3 days or something.

    for eg. i am appearing in plenty of cases where expedite word is used by High Court or Supreme Court, but that only means at ur discretion do it as fast as possible, no deadline.

    if high court really would have felt urgency than in normal cases directions are like :

    - decide within fortnight
    - decide within 3 months

    that is a mandamus under article 226, simpliciter expedite is of no value in law, and it actually means the matter filed before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court, for appropriate relief failed.

    ps; in one matter ( i know ) recently expedite order was passed the matter is not heard since a month or so

    Danish, Itni jaldi Darr gaye ke Bad Wishes dena shuru kar diya. This is the bad quality of Salman Fans bahut jaldi Darr jate hain. 4 Continuous Blockbuster ke bad bhi Salman ke fans ki darr ki halat wahi hai. Shame Shame. Tum jaise logon ke wajah se Salman Fans badnam hain. Kahan Bada Dil Salman and Kahan Darrboq Salman Fans.

  17. harish

    Scholes ADF and Ajay Devgan knew this thing 3 months back. They thought they will manage it, but as buzz was extremely low for SOS and not much interest shown by audience toeards it’s Songs and trailors they started this nrws so at least SOS comes in news. SOS team job is done know most people are aware SOS is also rleasing and due to some sympathy those people who will not get tickrts for JTHJ will watch SOS. SOS was always goner just making this news it will get some audience and Ajay knows this that is why He is doing all this.

    “”Nayyar said: “Petitioner (Devgn) would require some time to enter into some agreement with exhibitors before its release””

    so Talks are still on………..
    Ajay lagta hai…….SRK ka career khatam karke hi rahega……

  19. harish

    Ank SRK career where it is Ajay has showed how big Idioit he is. 3 Months back us ko pata tha ab Jab movie uski Flop ke kagar par hai is style ki news kar ke koshish kar raha hai ke audience comes in theater. Haaa.

  20. harish

    Ank and one more SRK is giving Hits continusoly while Ajay 2 or 3 years back started giving hits and that also with Rohit Shetty outside Rohit Shetty he had Hit Rajneeti Ranbir main lead and OUATIM Emran Hashmi main lead. SOS is not directed by Rohit so flop to hona hi hai. SOS se full confirm ho ga Ajay is zero without Rohit, plus Rohit has also left him and moved to SRK. Chalo now we will easily yesteryear star Ajay.

    1. ank_16n

      yaar Harish i totally agree with u……..

      par problem ye hai ki…..
      Iss saare Notices se…
      SOS ko bahut publicity mil rahi hai…..

      Ye sab publicity stunt hai….
      Kyuki……Delhi aur Punjab mein Sos ko jada shows aur Screens mill rahi hai…….

      and Koi kuch bhi kahe…..
      SOS ki wajah se JTHJ ko kam se kam 40-50 % collections ka reduction hoga……

      Jo SRK ke liye acha nhi hai……

      Aur mei career khatam wali coment ko series mat lo…..
      main maazak kar raha tha….

  21. Tango

    Vakil sahab maaf kar do, ghalti ho gayee :!:

    Vaise bhi these days too many lawyers I have to meet, because IT waalon ne naak mein dum kar rakha hai.

    I guess this is how things will go, were the middle class/tax payers will be harassed so that they let the govt. continue with its splurge and corruption. No RTI etc.

  22. iitianWay

    twitter space for SOS on NG:
    srk ke prem pujariyon ne socha …yaha bhi YRF sambhaal lega…
    are bhai apne “haatho” par bharosa karo…har “suckcess” ke liye ;)

  23. SCHOLES

    LOL… tango.. i am sorry for ur trouble.

    That is indeed bad, if someone is wrongly troubling u.
