22 Jun – The upcoming Karan Johar-produced movie "Jug Jugg Jeeyo" has to be screened to a Ranchi court first before its release, following an allegation of copyright infringement.

The issue sparked after Ranchi-based writer Vishan Singh accused the film of using the content of his story, "Punny Rani" without giving him any credit.


He sought a stay on the release of the film and a hefty compensation.
