In a recent turn of events, the Ludhiana Court has stayed the release of the much-awaited Punjabi film ‘Jodi’, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Nimrat Khaira. The movie, which was scheduled to hit the screens on May 5, has been temporarily halted due to a legal dispute over biopic rights. The court has issued summons to Diljit Dosanjh, Nimrat Khaira, and Rhythm Boyz Entertainment owner Karaj Gill.
‘Jodi’, directed by Amberdeep Singh, is a romantic drama that brings together the popular on-screen pair of Diljit Dosanjh and Nimrat Khaira. The film has generated significant buzz among fans, who eagerly awaited its release. However, the ongoing legal tussle has put the film’s future in jeopardy.
The dispute arose over the unauthorized use of biographical material in the film, which allegedly infringes on the rights of the individual whose story is being depicted. The court took cognizance of the issue and decided to halt the film’s release until the matter is resolved.
The Ludhiana Court’s decision came after a complaint was filed by the individual, who claimed that the filmmakers did not seek the necessary permissions and clearances to use their story in the film. The complainant also alleged that the movie presents their story in a distorted and unauthorized manner, which could potentially harm their reputation.
This is not the first time Diljit Dosanjh’s film has faced legal issues. His earlier film, ‘Chamkila’, a biopic based on the life of legendary Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila, also faced a stay order from the court. The release of ‘Chamkila’ was halted over similar concerns related to the rights to the late singer’s life story and music.
The court has now summoned Diljit Dosanjh, Nimrat Khaira, and Rhythm Boyz Entertainment owner Karaj Gill to present their case on the matter. The film’s fate now lies in the hands of the court, which will decide whether the movie can be released as planned or if it requires further modifications to comply with the legal requirements.
Fans of the actors and the Punjabi film industry are eagerly awaiting the court’s decision, hoping that the legal issues can be resolved, allowing the much-anticipated film to hit the screens. Meanwhile, the film’s team and the parties involved in the dispute will have to engage in legal proceedings to determine the outcome of this case.
