The Sanjay Dutt, Irrfan Khan and Kangna starrer Knock Out is facing major trouble just days before its release. The Mani Shankar directed film is facing plagiarism allegations from a reputed Hollywood studio.


The case so far in question cropped up when 20th Century Fox moved the Bombay High Court alleging a copyright infringement, and seeking an injunction on the release of Sohail Maklai’s Knock Out. The basis for this petition being that the film Knock Out is a blatant copy of their Hollywood film Phone Booth starring Colin Farrell.


What’s interesting to know is that both films show the protagonist taking a victim hostage within a phone booth and forcing him to reveal certain dark secrets.


Yesterday, the High Court directed Sohail Maklai Entertainment Private Limited (SMEPL), producer of Knock Out, to give Fox Studios a copy of their screenplay and adjourned the case till Oct 13.


What is to be seen now, is if this case will delay the release of the film from its scheduled release date of Oct 15.
