PVR Pictures which produced Taare Zameen Par and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na had earlier entered into an agreement with Rajkumar Santoshi to direct two films for them: a film based on Emperor Ashoka and a romantic comedy titled Backstreet Boys. Though pre-production work started, both the projects have been stalled.
Rajkumar Santoshi then started Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. He is producing and directing this film and completed the first schedule.
Now, PVR Pictures filed a case in the Mumbai Court against Rajkumar Santoshi on breach of agreement. Their plea is that the director has to complete PVR assignment of two films have to be completed before he takes up any other project.
PVR also claimed that the story scripted for their film Backstreet Boys is being filmed by Santoshi in the name of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. The issue is in court and even the Ranbir-Katrina film is also stalled until the verdict of court.
