Veere Di Wedding vs Veerey Ki Wedding: High Court Rules In Favour Of Jimmy Sheirgill, Dismisses Anil Kapoor’s Claims



Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor-starrer Veere Di Wedding has been making headlines even before it has gone on floors. Sometime ago, it was reported Jimmy Sheirgill is busy shooting for a Punjabi film Veerey Ki Wedding, the title of which is similar to the Anil Kapoor production.

The similarity irked the Kapoors and Anil had written to Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) for intervention. He also moved court to stop makers of the Jimmy Sheirgill-starrer from using the title, claiming they were seeking mileage from the similar-sounding title of a bigger film.

However, on Friday, the High Court dismissed claims made by the Kapoors and ruled in favour of Jimmy Sheirgill’s Punjabi film.
Ashu Trikha, director of Veerey Ki Wedding told a tabloid, “We were informed that their lawyers had sent a notice asking us to be present in court, else they'd seek interim relief. We rushed to get our paperwork done.”

“The judge said he was not convinced by the [Anil's] argument. He did not find any misuse or deceit as alleged, given that the story and cast were different. We are waiting for the judgment copy,” added the director.

The Kapoors haven’t released any statements from their side but it is said that the decision is NOT a huge blow to the makers. The judge merely stated that both films can retain their titles.

Directed by Rhea Kapoor, the film stars Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. This is Kareena’s first film since delivering Taimur.
