SC Responds To A Complainant Who Felt Cheated As YRF Excluded The Song, Jabra Fan From Shah Rukh Khan Starrer, Fan
Complainant Afreen Fatima Zaidi felt cheated when makers unlike the promos of Fan, did not include Shah Rukh Khan’s song Jabra Fan in the movie
Shah Rukh Khan’s fans do go crazy even when they get a single glimpse of the superstar and watching his movies is nothing less than a treat for them. While filmmakers tend to shoot and showcase promotional songs for the movie before the release, Yash Raj Films too followed the formula for SRK’s film, Fan. The song titled Jabra Fan which was showcased during the promotions on TV and other platforms was not part of the movie. Now, this left one of the actor’s fans cheated, hence, the complainant filed a complaint against the makers.
As reported in PTI, the Supreme Court on Monday issued an order of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission asking Yash Raj Films Pvt Ltd to pay compensation to the complainant. The amount SC has ordered the production house to play the complainant Rs 10,000 along with litigation costs. The notices were issued to the Central Board of Film Certification and complainant who is a teacher by profession by the bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and V Ramasubramanium. The order came after an appeal was filed by YRF challenging NCDRC’s order, asking the former to pay the complainant Afreen Fatima Zaidi Rs. 10,000 and litigation cost worth Rs. 5,000.
Complainant Afreen Fatima Zaidi had approached District Forum by filing a consumer complaint, but it was dismissed. Following this, she filed the complaint in State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, Maharashtra. This was opposed by the production house, stating Jabra Fan being a promotional song was conveyed via press interviews in its defence.
