Mumbai: Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor's film 'Veere Di Wedding' has still not gone on floors, but the film is making headlines for various reasons.

There were some reports, which stated that Jimmy Shergill has a Punjabi film with the similar title ‘Veerey Ki Wedding.’

 

Anil Kapoor, who did not want the Punjabi makers to use this title, had written to the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA).

The actor intervened further into the matter and approached the court to stop them from using this title, as he claimed that they were just gaining publicity through the film’s name.

However, yesterday High Court dismissed claims made by the Kapoors and ruled in favour of Jimmy Shergill’s Punjabi film.

Ashu Trikha, director of ‘Veerey Ki Wedding’ told a tabloid, “We were informed that their lawyers had sent a notice asking us to be present in court, else they'd seek interim relief. We rushed to get our paperwork done.”

“The judge said he was not convinced by the [Anil's] argument. He did not find any misuse or deceit as alleged, given that the story and cast were different. We are waiting for the judgment copy,” added the director.

The Kapoors haven’t yet released any statements from their side, but a source informed a portal saying, “It is not 'a huge blow' as being projected by certain media houses. The judge basically said that they have made the film, so let their title be. Both the films can retain their titles.”

Produced by Rhea Kapoor, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ stars Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar in the lead roles.
