As per the latest update in relation to the ongoing copyright infringement case, by its order pronounced in open court today, the Hon’ble Commercial Court, Ranchi has dismissed Vishal Singh’s application against Karan Johar and Dharma Productions seeking an injunction against release of their much awaited film Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Separately, Dharma Productions & Karan Johar are in the process of filing a suit for defamation and damages against Vishal Singh.
The Ranchi court under judge MC Jha had ordered a screening of the film ahead of its release in theatres on June 24.
