The Bombay high court on April 7 declined to grant interim relief to F.K. Films on the copyright row over a song, Pyar do pyar lo from its film, Janbaaz, being used by UTV in its movie, Thank You. F.K. Films had moved the high court, alleging that UTV had not purchased the rights to the song and hence should be restrained from using it in its movie.
The court rejected the suit, observing that there had been “a gross and unexplained delay by F.K.Films in filing the suit” as Thank You was slated for release the next day. The court kept the suit pending and directed UTV to file its reply by June 28.
