Pass order on Ajay Devgn’s plea, high court tells CCI

New Delhi, Nov 2 The Delhi High Court Friday asked the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to “urgently” pass the order on a plea filed by actor Ajay Devgn against the alleged monopolistic practices adopted by Yash Raj Films.

Yash Raj Films (YRF), the production house owned by late Yash Chopra, allegedly abused its dominant position by asking exhibitors to dedicate more screens to their upcoming release “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” than for his “Son of Sardaar”, Devgn said in a complaint to the CCI.

“Jab Tak Hai Jaan” (starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma) and “Son Of Sardaar” (starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt) are scheduled for release this Diwali Nov 13.

Hearing the plea of Devgn, Justice Rajiv Shakdher asked the CCI to hear the plea and pass the order urgently.

Advocate Rajiv Nayyar, representing Devgn, told the court that arguments in the case have been heard by the CCI.

Nayyar said: “Petitioner (Devgn) would require some time to enter into some agreement with exhibitors before its release and the advance booking of the petitioner’s film will commence from tomorrow (Nov 3) but the commission is not listing the matter in spite of the urgency.”
