A local court on Saturday rejected a plea seeking a stay on the release of Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
“After hearing arguments for three successive days, the Jaipur Metropolitan Court prima facie found no merit in the case and rejected the application,” S.S. Hora, counsel for Viacom18, said.
Filmmaker Pratik Sharma had brought a copyright infringement case against the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. His advocate said, “We will study the judgement and then decide our future course of action."
Sharma had alleged that the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha had lifted the punchline and the subject from his film Gutrun Gutar Gun.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha will now have a smooth release on August 11.
