Ajay Devgn-starrer Rascals in legal trouble?

We heard that Sanjay Dutt’s maiden production Rascals, starring Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Kangna Ranaut and Lisa Haydon has run into trouble. Cinemax Pvt Ltd has filed a legal suit against Dutt’s production partners Vinay Choksey and Sanjay Ahluwalia. The suit demands a stay order on the release of the film that was slated to hit theatres on October 6. Confirming the story, Sunil Punjabi, CEO, Cinemax Pvt Ltd said, “Yes, this is true. The hearing on the stay order which we have demanded will be held on either Monday or Tuesday.” Explaining why they decided to file a lawsuit, Punjabi said, “Choksey and Ahluwalia had taken Rs 2 crore from our company in 2008. Their company Rupali Aum Entertainment was supposed to make a film for us with that amount. That film never got made. We want our money back.” Punjabi also informed that the stay order, if passed, would stall the film’s release not just in Mumbai but across the country. In defense Choksey said, “We are yet to receive the papers of the new legal suit. My lawyer will read the papers and then decide how we fight them ahead.” We just hope the film gets released soon.
