UTV moves to Supreme Court over A Wednesday remake
On September 28, 2011, Mumbai Mirror reported how the Bombay high court had dismissed UTV’s petition against Asia Media and Gemini Media alleging the two production houses for not sticking to the contract for A Wednesday remake. Challenging the high court’s decision, UTV Motion Pictures has now dragged Gemini to the Supreme Court.
A source from UTV revealed, “Gemini Industries and Imaging Limited and Asia Digital Entertainment Pvt. Ltd came to us for the rights A Wednesday, a film that they had already started shooting.
They told us that they would come back with a script for our approval. This means, that even before signing the contract for the remake rights, there was an infringement of copyright. They just wanted to legitimise their actions by trying to obtain the rights.”
When contacted Siddharth Roy Kapoor, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures said, “As a process, now we want to approach the Supreme Court through a special leave petition challenging the order passed by the division bench of the Bombay High Court, dismissing our appeal.”
