After ‘Jolly LLB 2’, another movie ran into a legal trouble. The makers of Shaadi.com, a matrimonial website filed a case against Shoojit Sircar’s movie Running Shaadi.com, a week before the film is set to release.
The owners of the website think that the audience would believe the film’s story to be the real story of the matrimonial website, and since the story is about couples who elope and get married, it would negatively impact the website’s image in the market.
Sircar’s Crouching Tiger Motion Pictures and Rising Sun Films filed an undertaking that they would not use the trade mark ‘shaadi-.com’ in the title, dialogue or any visual representation of the film, which stars Tapsee Pannu.
Shoojit, apparently agreed to change the title of the film and also re-shoot portions of the film and drop every mention of the film’s title in the movie as well as in the publicity material.
The film’s makers will now file a reply in the court, following which the case will be heard.
