CCI rejects Devgn’s allegation of YRF abusing dominant position

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has rejected the plea of actor-producer Ajay Devgn against Yash Raj Films (YRF) for their alleged abuse of dominant position ahead of release of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ).

Devgn alleged that YRF was abusing its dominant position and was asking exhibitors to provide more screens to their release than for his film Son of Sardaar.

Both the films will be released this Diwali, November 13, 2012.

“We considered the plea application. We have not found any merit in the case as there is no case of abuse of dominant position. This is a case of first comer. That can not be held against them (YRF). Hence there is no violation of Section 3 of the Competition Act,” an official source told the Indian Express. The orders for the same will be issued soon, the official said.

Earlier, last week, the Delhi High Court had asked the CCI to expeditiously decide the complaint by Ajay Devgn Films not getting enough single-screen theatres due to YRF abusing its position.

YRF had apparently told the exhibitors that it will give Salman Khan-starrer Ek Tha Tiger only if they agreed to give its Diwali release prominence over other films.

However, the production house, YRF, denied the allegations, arguing that a Yash Chopra-Shah Rukh Khan movie, coming after a gap of eight years, did not need any coercion for contractual screening.

Devgn Films lawyers in statement had said, “YRF has entered into a tie-in arrangement with the exhibitors in a manner that it has made it compulsory for the exhibitors to exhibit the untitled movie of YRF on Diwali day and two weeks thereafter with all four shows.” They added that such a tie-in arrangement in the present circumstances violates Section 3 of the Competition Act, 2002.

    This was expected when last year SRK managed to get U certificate for a movie full of double meaning jokes, gay scenes, boob grabbing etc. This was no big deal in corrupt india.

    As I had said, let the law take it’s own course which it has.

    I accept it.

    ADF can still go to to supreme court.

    But problem is, even if the SC gives a decision against ADF, there will again be allegation that YRF ne manipulate kar liya.

    I think if CCI has given a decision then there is no point in challenging them.

    Ajay D and others should now learn a lesson from this. If you are planning for festival releases make sure you pre-book ample number of screens exclusively atleast for 2 weeks.

    Anyways all the best to SOS.

    Earlier I used to say …. may the best one wins.

    But now I will not say that, because there is no competition now.

    1 good thing for Ajay D is most of his recent movies have trended beautifully.
    Remember – Singham, Bol Bachchan both touched 100cr mark after 30 days of release.

    If SOS is good it has enough time to collect good. Though competition is more this time but we also have festival release and extended week advantage.

    The people who say salman is ‘innocent untill proved guilty ‘ are crying foul on YRF even if they are proved innocent.

    Guys Komal Nahata just said..
    YRF never even appeared before CCI in Ajay Devgan case coz they weren’t summoned.Why? Coz the case was dismissed outright,not even admitted


    Where are all those which were degrading YRF whole day yesterday..
    Court even didnt admitted the case.. Now times of india which was going all out against YRF is not posting verdict..

    SOS team did cheap thing by degrading YRF.. Their case was nt even accepted and they started saying against YRF.. Really bad

    As I said it before, if SOS is a good film, the makers shouldn’t worry, it will surely do well. Yes of-course, the opening will not be strong, but if the film has good WOM, than it helps in longevity.

    In-fact its possible for SOS to collect as much as JTHJ opr even more if their film is much better than JTHJ.

    May the best win.

    November 6, 2012 at 5:53 PM

    Well its out and clear now. Hope Ajay learns from this release saga and takes care of his future releases without any fretful approach. Also there is no point in complaining now when its too late instead they could have waste this time on film’s publicity and promotion instead of roaming around CCI or courts. Also to be fair if Ajay’s product is good then it would succeed irrespective of its release or screen count. Meanwhile, just watched Heer’s promo from JTHJ and it does bring some positive vibe about the film. Hope the best film succeeds & Wishing both the team JTHJ and SOS all the best.
