Delhi HC Clears Deck For Dum Maaro Dum Release

Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu-starer Dum Maaro Dum secured the Delhi High Court's green signal for its release after the film's makers assured that it would blur some scenes against an air hostess training institute.

Accepting producer and director Ramesh Sippy's assurance that the movie will have blurred scenes of the air hostess institute and its logo, Justice Manmohan Singh allowed the film to be released from Friday.

Dum Maaro Dum's release was objected to by Frankfinn Airhostess Training Institute which had sought damages worth Rs 35 lakhs from Sippy for allegedly depicting it in a negative manner in the movie. In a civil suit to the court, the institute had contended that one of the characters, shown as its student in the film, was given a negative role which tarred the image and reputation of the institute.

"The character in the film does not show a student of Frankfinn in a good light. This film does not help in any way to maintain the good reputation and image of the company," the air hostess training institute told the court seeking removal of certain scenes in the movie.

"The director and the producer are personally liable for the story of the movie and the manner of depiction of the movie scenes," the institute said in the suit claiming a damage of Rs 35 lakh.

The company also sought removal of the institute's uniform, the logo and any other similar trademark in the film.
