Yash Raj Films and Netflix are challenging the Stay Order on Maharaj, multiple industry sources confirmed Bollywood Hungama.

EXCLUSIVE: Yash Raj Films and Netflix challenge Stay Order on Junaid Khan-starrer Maharaj

A reputed, veteran trade source says, "YRF and Netflix are challenging the Stay order. The matter is in court. Maharaj is based on a real-life case and it is adapted from Saurabh Shah's book titled ‘Maharaj’. The author has also come out to say that the film does not vilify the Vaishnav community or the religion. It is about a social reformer, who brought about a positive change in society. The makers are hopeful for a positive outcome in this case.”

Maharaj has been directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, of Hichki (2018) fame and it stars Junaid Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Shalini Pandey. It also features Sharvari, who was recently seen in the sleeper hit Munjya, in a crucial role. Maharaj marks the acting debut of Aamir Khan’s Junaid. The young actor has two more films lined up. Shalini Pandey, meanwhile, climbed to fame with her top-notch performance in Arjun Reddy (2017). She was also seen in Ranveer Singh’s social comedy, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, which was also produced by Yash Raj Films.

Maharaj marks the first film of Yash Raj Films to release directly on OTT under YRF Entertainment. This vertical began with a bang with The Railway Men, set during the 1984 Bhopal Gas tragedy. Starring Kay Kay Menon, R Madhavan, Divyenndu and Babil Khan, this Netflix web series, directed by debutant Shiv Rawail, was a huge success and was at 146th rank in terms of viewership of all shows on the streaming giant between July and December 2023.
