The court directed SRK, his production house Red Chillies Entertainment and Eros Entertainment to deposit a sum of Rs. 1 crore as pay-order to the court before the release of the movie because of a petition filed by television producer and writer Yash Patnaik. Patnaik alleged that the concept of Ra.One originally belonged to him and has sought 10% of the profits if he is not given credits. He has sought an injunction on the release until he is given due credit. If the defendants fail to deposit the money tomorrow, an injunction against the movie’s release will become operational.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One, will release globally next week. The film will have a Dubai premiere on October 24, a London premiere on October 25 and a grand premiere in Toronto on October 26. The film also stars Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor.
