Copyright case filed against makers of Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon.

Today we see a multitude of films being adapted and remade in different languages, however every now and then there are claims of films being copied from others that were previously released. The latest to land in a copyright infringement suite is the film Kis KisKo Pyaar Karoon (KKKPK). In fact, a case has been registered with the Madras High Court stating that the film KKKPK has been copied from a 2014 Kannada film Nimbe Huli.

Commenting on the same Hemanth Hegde, director of Nimbe Huli states that he had sold the rights of the film to a Tamil director K Madesh to be remade, however the makers of KKKPK have not acquired the rights to remake the film from either Madesh or himself. Further adding, Hegde says that he is now contemplating on taking legal action by filing a plagiarism suit against the makers.

On the other hand however, producer Ratan Jain of Venus rubbishes the claims of Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon being a copy saying, “We had registered the script for KKKPK with the screenwriters association back in 2008 along with the dialogues of the film as well, while Nimbe Huli released in 2014. So effectively proving that my film was ready much before Nimbe Huli, so how can KKKPK be a copy?”

When quizzed about his next move Jain says, “As of now I have not received any formal proceedings of a case being filed, nor have I watched the Kannada film. In fact I am trying to get my hands on a copy of the film to gain a better picture of this.”

Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karoon marks the Bollywood debut of TV comedian Kapil Sharma and also features Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Phadnis, Elli Avram, Simran Kaur Mundi, Supriya Pathak and Varun Sharma. Directed by Abbas – Mustan, the film is slated for release on September 25.
