After the rejection from the Competition Commission of India, regarding their complaint against Yash Raj Films for allegedly restricting the exhibitors to provide more screens to Son Of Sardaar than their film Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Ajay Devgn Ffilms (ADF) has now approached the Competition Appellate Tribunal.
Reads an official quote from the spokesperson of ADF, “We are shocked by the rejection of our legitimate case by the CCI. We have approached the Appellate Tribunal against the order.”
The CCI rejected the plea of Devgn against YRF for their alleged abuse of dominant position ahead of release JTHJ as they didn’t find any merit in the case. According to CCI, there was no case of abuse of dominant position and that the filed case is a case of first comer which cannot be held against YRF. Hence, there is no violation of Section 3 of the Competition Act.
Both the films Son Of Sardaar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be releasing this Diwali, November 13.
