SC clears Kunal Kohli’s ‘Phir Se…’ for release

Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Monday gave a clearance to Kunal Kohli’s “Phir Se…” for release after the movie got embroiled in a plagiarism row. Heaving a sigh of relief, the filmmaker, who is making his acting debut with the movie, says the film’s release date will be announced soon.

“Supreme Court clears #PhirSe for release after an appeal was filed. Hon judges asked us to go for a settlement. I agreed, as I do not believe in fighting with members of my fraternity,” the filmmaker tweeted on Monday.

“Hon judges felt creative people should settle to promote creativity & culture. Case is finally over. Release date to be announced soon,” he added.

According to reports, writer Jyoti Kapoor alleged that the film is based on her script, which she once discussed with Kohli. She moved the Bombay High Court, demanding a stay on the release of film.

The movie, which has been shot in London, also stars Jennifer Winget of “Saraswatichandra” fame.
