Court tells ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ makers not to show movie on TV yet

Yeh Jawaani Hai DeewaniOn a case registered by the manufacturer of squash Rooh Afza, the Delhi High Court has restrained the producers of Hindi movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani from launching the film on Television because of some alleged objectionable dialogues.

Justice Manmohan Singh said, in an order made available Monday, that the curbs weren’t applicable to the cinema version of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which was launched in the cinema halls a week ago. The court also issued notices to the director, producer and dialogue writers of “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” and posted the issue for hearing July 16.

The court’s order came in an injunction suit registered by the Hamdard National Foundation, the manufacturer of Rooh Afza. The manufacturer said that the product was a household name in the country and outside India and the movie contained some “objectionable” dialogues about the Unani recipe.
