The upcoming Boman Irani, Arshad Warsi starrer Jolly LLB which releases tomorrow had run into a spot of legal trouble a while earlier with three different petitions being filed against the film. While one of the petitions filed sought a stay on the film’s release, we have learnt that the Delhi High court has since dismissed the PIL on the grounds that the petition “lacks full details” of the film.
A bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice V K Jain rejected the plea of a group of lawyers who had alleged that some dialogues and scenes in the film were defamatory. “In our opinion, the petition cannot be entertained at this stage for want of full details. The petition is solely on the basis of trailer which is being exhibited on television and websites… There are no details of the circumstances on which the dialogues had been included in the scene and for that matter in the film,” the bench said.
The bench was hearing the PIL filed by lawyers who had done their LLB from Law College, Meerut University.
