The upcoming film Badmashiyaan that features Filmistaan actor Sharib Hashmi, Suzanna Mukherjee and TV actor Karan Mehra seems to have run into trouble. In fact the Delhi High Court has issued an order restraining the distribution and exhibition of the film after a complaint of copyright infringement was filed against makers of the film VRG Motion Pictures.
This ruling came after MSM Motion Pictures and Kaleidoscope filed a plea stating that Badmashiyaan was a blatant copy of the Korean film Couples, whose rights had been acquitted by them for their yet to release film Mango.
Commenting on the same, MSM Motion Pictures released an official statement saying, "The Delhi High Court has restrained the distribution and exhibition of the trailer and the film titled Badmashiyaan, on the basis of a claim for copyright infringement by MSM and Kaleidoscope. The Plaintiffs claimed that Badmashiyaan is a copy of the Korean film Couples and their yet to be released film, Mango. The plaintiffs also claimed this relief based on an exclusive right that they obtained from the producer of Couples to make the Hindi language remake of Couples."
Badmashiyaan was scheduled to release on Feb 27.
