Even as Farhan Akhtar's eagerly awaited SRK starrer Don 2 opened across cinema halls in the U.K. yesterday and is all set for a worldwide release tomorrow (Dec 23), the makers are still awaiting the verdict whether they would have to pay any compensation based on the case filed against them by Nariman Films and the Irani Family (makers of the original Don)
Even though the Bombay High Court cleared the release of the film a decision on damages to be paid if any will be taken today by division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and justice Roshan Dalvi. Nariman Films and the Irani Family had claimed damages to the extent of Rs.200 crores for violating copyrights by adopting the Don signature tune, songs of the original Don and also copying its script, characters and music without prior intimation, further stating that the rights of the said script were given only for the remake and not for the sequel.
It remains to be seen if the makers of Don 2 have to cough up some amount as compensation, the decision of which would be taken later today.
