Anil Kapoor complains to IMPAA against Jimmy Shergill’s film ‘Veerey Ki Wedding’


Last year in January Sonam Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor had announced their film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam top-lining the cast.


Anil announced this venture in 2016 and he registered the title- Veere Di Wedding in 2015, but due to Bebo’s pregnancy the film got delayed. During this period, another film starring Jimmy Shiergill went on floors with the title- Veerey Ki Wedding. The makers have completed 50 percent of the shoot.

The almost identical names have bothered the Kapoors, who claim to have registered the title first. Anil Kapoor has written a letter to the Film Makers Combine to look into it.

In a letter written to the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPAA), Anil Kapoor has urged for intervention.

Meanwhile, Veerey Ki Wedding (Jimmy’s film) director Ashu Trikha claims that they had acquired a copyright and trademark for the title, apart from registering it with their association, Indian Film and TV Producers Council. While talking to a leading daily, he said, “The association suggests that a trademark supersedes any other registration. Legally, we have supported our title with everything.”

Reportedly, Chandan Bakshi, who is Veerey Ki Wedding’s co-producer, clarified that IMPAA had initially asked them to change the title but they gave the team a green signal after learning that the title has a trademark and is registered as well. Also a major part of the film had been shot.

On the other hand, senior officials from IMPAA are hinting that Anil might have to change the title of his film as he hasn’t commenced shooting. But Anil’s spokesperson has told the daily that Anil registered the title in 2015 and has no plans of changing the title. The makers will go ahead with the original title.
