Shahrukh Khan told to deposit Rs. 1 crore in 'Ra.One' copyright violation case

Bombay High Court tells the makers of Ra.One to deposit money before the film’s release

Shahrukh Khan’s dream project Ra.One has been dragged into the Bombay High Court over an allegation of copyright violation by a television producer Yash Patnaik.

Patnaik alleges that the writers of Ra.One stole the idea from a story he developed in 2006. He had recently moved Bombay High Court (BHC), demanding that he be given the credit for the film’s concept, or be given ten percent of the film’s profits.

Patnaik’s lawyer Ravi Kadam argued that the superhero of Ra.One is similar in attributes and appearance to the superhero of Patnaik’s story.

“The super-villain of Patnaik's script was called 'One', which has been used by Shahrukh in the movie's title,” Kadam said. On the other hand, Shahrukh's lawyer, senior advocate Virendra Tulzapurkar argued that the script of Ra.One was completely different and original.

Keeping the final decision in the case pending, the court has asked the makers of Ra.One to deposit a sum of Rs. 1 crore by Saturday.

“The defendants (Red Chillies Entertainment and Eros Entertainment) are directed to deposit a sum of Rs 1 crore as pay-order to the court and then release the movie,” the division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Roshan Dalvi reportedly said.

The court observed: “It is the most unfortunate part of the film industry that people use others' concepts and then don't want to pay or give them credit.”

The court observed that prima facie there has been a case of copyright violation.

Ra.One is slated to release on October 26.
