The Film Emotional Atyachar gets clearance from HC to retain title

Producers of The Film Emotional Atyachar were in a soup recently due to the resemblance between their movie title and the show on UTV Bindass which goes by the same name.

UTV Bindass and Genx Entertainment had filed a case against the film's producers Purple Haze Motion Pictures, seeking Rs. 20 crore as compensation and a stay order on the release, as they claimed that UTV had the copyright over the name 'Emotional Atyachar'. According to the UTV, they have registered the title in 2008 with the association of TV producers.

However, the film which stars Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey and Kalki Koechlin, bears no resemblance to the show what so ever while Purple Haze Motion Pictures claimed that they have registered the title with the Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association.

In view of both sides of the story, the Bombay High Court ruled out the judgment in the favour of the film and has given a go ahead for its release and has asked the producers to display a disclaimer stating that the film is not associated with the reality show 'Emotional Atyachar'.
