The court refuses to issue injunction in favour of Eros, who produced Bajirao Mastani!
Some time ago, we ran a report that Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale are fighting an ugly battle over who would dominate whom in single screens!
Apparently, Eros, the production house behind Bajirao Mastani had signed a deal with single screen theatres that they have to showcase Bajirao Mastani in their theatres only and they shouldn’t touch Dilwale at all. The exhibitors feel that this kind of monopoly act cannot be allowed, so the exhibitors have filed a case against this monopoly act and the case is being heard in the Bombay session court now. Especially so, since the buzz for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer is much higher than that of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus!
Eros owner, Kishore Lulla had even met Shah Rukh Khan to work things out but nothing of that sort happened.
Now the court had ruled in favour of the the theatre owners and have refused to grant injunction to Eros. So now, single screens are free to allocate any number of scenes they want to Dilwale. Popular trade analyst Komal Nahata had tweeted the below,
With the first battle lost, let us see if the Ranveer Singh - Deepika Padukone - Priyanka Chopra's historical romance can topple Rohit Shetty's masala entertainer at the box office tomorrow!
