Mumbai: Though there had been some eleventh hour speculation over a potentially roadblock on the release of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon,’ the release has finally been facilitated.

As per latest reports, the team of ‘Rangoon’ have been asked by the Bombay High Court to deposit a total of two crore rupees.

 

A team from the production house Wadia Movietone Pvt. Ltd had accused the makers of ‘Rangoon’ of lifting the lead character from their movie ‘Hunterwaali,’ played by Australian stuntwoman Mary Evans also known popularly as Fearless Nadia, to make Kangana Ranaut’s character in the film, Julia.

The production house alleged a blatant case of copyright infringement had happened.

However, with the latest development, the film will release as per schedule, on February 24.

A Casablancaesque love triangle set to the backdrop of the Second World War, the film also stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles.
