Big trouble for Ranveer Singh and producers of the movie Gully Boy, whose trailer got aired on Wednesday. The movie Gully Boy is based on the life of a street rapper. Although Ranveer Singh has stunned the audience with his performance in the one and half minute trailer, even in his wildest dreams he wouldn’t have expected that this stunning performance would invite trouble for him.
Famous rapper and YouTube sensation, Omprakash Mishra has filed a copyright violation and plagiarism case against the producers, Farhan Akhtar, Zoya Akhtar and Ritesh Sherwani.
Another famous singer and youtube sensation Dhinchak Pooja has come out in support of Omprakash Mishra. Dhinchak Pooja said “Bollywood sala chor hai..they once made a movie on my life and didn’t give me royalty or credit” supposedly referring to the movie Secret Superstar.
Court has accepted Omprakash’s plea and is likely to hold the release of the movie “Gully Boy” until it gets cleared whether the movie is based upon his life or not. In case it is, then the producers will have to pay a royalty fee to Omprakash Mishra.
Considering that millions of people are waiting for the movie and any delay would hurt the sentiments of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s fanbase, Courts are likely to set an early date for the hearing by further delaying the Ram Mandir hearing.
