The war between actor-producer Ajay Devgn and Yash Raj Films intensifies after the Competition Commission of India (CCI) rejected Ajay’s allegation that the production company is using its dominant position for the promotion of “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”.
Ajay insisted that the fight is not between him and actor Shahrukh Khan but between the producers of the movies “Son of Sardar” and”Jab Tak Hai Jaan”. The actor said that he had filed the complaint before Yash Chopra passed away”I had filed the complaint much before the demise of Yash Chopra.
When this happened I was like people are going to target me and nobody is going to understand my point of view… I was a villain on both sides. I couldn’t withdraw it (notice) from the Competition Commission… It is not a normal court,” Ajay told Press Trust of India(PTI).
We have just received an official statement from Ajay Devgn Ffilms (ADF) – “We are shocked by the rejection of our legitimate case by the CCI. We have approached the Appellate Tribunal against the order.” So what happens next?

Shahrukh Khan’s “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” releases on the same day as Ajay Devgn’s “Son Of Sardar” and the superstar says he is amused with the row over the two films, especially when everything had been sorted almost a year ago.
Directed by the late Yash Chopra, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” (JTHJ) is coming out Nov 13 and “Son of Sardaar” (SOS) is also releasing on the same day.
Ajay has filed a complaint with the Competition Commission of India (CCI) alleging that the makers of JTHJ have been blocking the release of his film SOS in certain theatres.
According to SRK, the release date was locked a year ago and the screens were also booked than.
It looks like the battle lines are clearly drawn. And it always helps to have ‘powerful’ allies on your side.
According to a source close to Salman Khan, if his close friend Ajay Devgn’s film Son Of Sardaar doesn’t get its ‘fair’ share of screen space as compared to Yash Raj Films’ Jab Tak Hai Jaan starring Shah Rukh Khan, the actor has decided to use his leverage in the industry to clash his upcoming film Kick with SRK’s next film with Rohit Shetty, Chennai Express.
As the awards season in Bollywood approaches, organisers of various events have already started working to sign on the top stars for stage performances. And the two most sought after names to have emerged are those of Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
“With Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ) coming up, Shah Rukh and Katrina are the hottest new on-screen pair. That’s why every organiser — for popular shows including Screen, Apsara, IIFA (International Indian Film Academy) and Stardust — has approached them. They want them to do an act together on stage, which will no doubt get a lot of TV viewership. The deals haven’t been finalised yet, as it all depends on their availability and fee,” says an industry source.
Mohamad Morani of event-management company Cineyug confirms, “They are a very viable pair. We have started talks with several stars, including them. We are planning to get them on board for two award shows — Zee Cine and Screen.”
The unusual thing about Talaash is the emotional content that deals with sadness and loss. Conventional Hindi cinema stays away from these words but here were three people who supported me. Loss and sadness can be entertaining and can be …
