Manoj Kumar wins the Om Shanti Om case against Farah and SRK

They say that strange are the ways of and in Bollywood. This couldn't have been truer than in the case of the recent Manoj Kumar and Farah Khan episode over the latter's blockbuster hit film Om Shanti Om. We said its 'strange' because when the film was released, Manoj Kumar was really upset over a particular scene which showed a spoof of him and his mannerisms. Immediately, SRK and Farah Khan extended the olive branch to the patriotic superstar and the film went on to create history in terms of B-O collections. But, as things were looking well everywhere, OSO got its release dates for satellite viewing which had retained Manoj Kumar's scene, reacting to which Manoj filed a case against the makers of OSO , seeking either a stay on the satellite screening or the deletion of the objectionable scenes in the Mumbai Sessions Court. The news is that the court has announced its verdict in favour of Manoj Kumar. Manoj Kumar's advocate said that the said the court has restrained the satellite telecasting of the film on 10/08/08 till further orders. He also added that the film cannot be shown on any satellite channel without the deletion of the objectionable scenes. Om Shanti Om released in November last year and was one of the biggest hits of 2007.
