Court curbs on release of Chakravyuh's Mehngai song

By Hindustan Times

The Delhi High Court restrained makers of Bollywood movie Chakravyuh from releasing the song Mehngai after a defamation suit filed by shoe maker Bata objecting to the use of its name in the lyrics.

The complainant said the use of its name in a song on inflation was "offending".

Justice Kailash Gambhir, in an interim order, allowed Bata's plea alleging that a satirical mention of the company's name in the song Mehngai was defamatory, and directed that the song will not be released till the plea was decided.

Directed by film maker Prakash Jha and produced by Sunil Lulla, Chakravyuh is scheduled to be released Oct 24.</
