Yash Raj lodges FIR over World Cup songs

Miffed by the Cricket World Cup organizers, Yash Raj Films has lodged an FIR against MCA and the ICC for playing songs from its films, without permission, during the World Cup. Apparently audio clips from YRF’s popular films, such as Band Baaja Baarat and Chak De India, were played during the league phase and the finals of the 2011 World Cup. “We have registered an FIR against Dhiraj Malhotra, Ratnakar Shetty, Hemant Waigankar, Lalchand Rajput, Haroon Lorgat and others at Marine Drive police station,” said Anurag Parmar, vice president, Novex Communication.
