A non-bailable warrant issued against producer Boney Kapoor, his wife Sridevi after they failed to appear before a UP Local Court in a case of alleged copyright violation. Birbal Singh Rana, a local writer, has alleged that the Boney’s BSK Network and Entertainment Pvt Ltd had stolen his script for their movie ‘Wanted’.
Wanted is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Pokiri. Boney Kapoor bought the remake rights of Pokiri on the suggestion of Sridevi and remade it in Hindi under Prabhudeva direction. Pokiri was released in 2006 and the petitioner Birbal claims that he submitted his copyright script to the company in 2004.
