Kangana Ranaut's ‘Lock Upp' runs into trouble after court issues stay order on reality show


New Delhi: The reality show ‘Lock Up’ hosted by Kangana Ranaut, to be aired from Sunday, has been put on hold by the City Civil Court in Hyderabad.

As a result, the show will not air on any kind of electronic or social media.

After taking note of a video clip of the show’s trailer, the court issued an ad-interim injunction on the release of the upcoming show, observing that it is similar to the story of petitioner Sanobar Baig and the concept of ‘The Jail’.

The concept, which is owned through Pride Media owner Sanobar Baig, was written by Shantanu Ray and title Anand and is registered under the Copyright Act on March 7, 2018 and also with the Film Writers Association.

The petition explains how the concept was developed and also lists the details of the money invested by them at various stages of concept development.

Commenting on the situation, Sanobar said, “When I saw the promo of the said show, I was in shock. I have been in touch with Abhishek Rege of Endemol Shine for a long time and have had several meetings on the subject in Hyderabad. He We had promised that once the market gets better then we will go ahead.”

He further mentioned that the show is outright plagiarism, adding: “The show is not only similar to our concept, but it is a complete copy of the same. I couldn’t believe that anyone could conceive of the concept to such an extent. Could steal. We have prayed the court for copyright infringement and got a stay order.”

If the legal representatives of the petitioner are successful in proving the infringement, the respondent production house (ALT Balaji of Ekta Kapoor) shall be liable for the consequences under sections 51 and 52 of the Copyright Act.

It is not that Sanobar directly approached the court. Sanobar reached the court only after the production house refused to negotiate with him.

He said, “I contacted the respective companies and requested them not to go ahead with this concept. But they did not listen and challenged that they have every right to stream as per schedule.”

“I had no option but to seek redress from the judiciary. Notice has been served to all the parties involved and we have acknowledgment. If the show airs, it will amount to contempt of court. I have Have full faith in the judiciary and I am sure justice will prevail,” Sanobar signed.
