    SRK wins case against copyright violation...


    The family of the script writer of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi dragged SRK to court for copyright violation. However, Red Chillies Idiot Box won the case today...


    Red Chillies Idiot Box' comedy sitcom, Ghar Ki Baat Hai is launching on NDTV Imagine from tonight, January 30th at the 9.30 PM slot, Friday to Sunday.

    As said by Shahrukh Khan in the recent press conference held for the launch of the show, "Ghar Ki Baat Hai is a tribute he wants to pay to the very popular show of yester years, Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi".

    However, this did put forward few hurdles for the production house, wherein Neha Joshi daughter of Late Sharad Joshi, a scriptwriter of the 1984 comedy show on DD Yeah Jo Hai Zindgai filed a petition against Shah Rukh Khan's company Red Chillies Private Ltd, NDTV Imagine channel and the Oberois, who were the Producers then, for copy writing their show without prior permission ,and demanded a stay order for the telecast of the show.

    According to our source from the production house, "SRK was dragged to court for copyright violation. The hearing for the case was scheduled for today, and apparently Red Chillies won the case".

    Elaborating on the hearing given, our source says, "It was a very irrelevant petition. We had officially informed the original producers of the show, the Oberois, and only then had gone ahead with the making. Sharad Joshi was a script writer, and not the producer of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, and hence the case was declared null and void".

    Well, a feather in the cap for SRK just before the launch of his Ghar Ki Baat Hai

    Case filed against SRK's company
    31 Jan 2009, 0218 hrs IST, TNN
    Times of India


    MUMBAI: Neha Joshi, daughter of Sharad Joshi, a scriptwriter of the 1984 comedy show on Doordarshan- Yeh Jo Hai Zindgai, has filed a petition
    against Shah Rukh Khan's company, Red Chillies Private Ltd, NDTV Imagine channel and the Oberois for copying their show without prior permission.

    According to the petition, the same serial by the name Ghar Ki Baat is starting on the channel from Friday. Joshi's advocate said: "We came to know that the SRK show has copied our show after we saw one of his interviews. The script was written by Sharad Joshi and the show was then produced by Oberois. They have now sold it to the actor's company and are releasing the show without the family's permission. We have filed the case under the Copyright Act.''

    The court has asked Red Chillies to file its reply by February 14. The matter will now be heard on February16.

    Mumbai: Allegations of plagiarism by writers of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi thrown out Shah Rukh Khan's television production house Red Chillies Idiot Box's sitcom Ghar Ki Baat Hai, which was aired on January 30 on NDTV Imagine, has won the case filed against them. The petition was filed by Neha Joshi, daughter of Sharad Joshi, who had penned the 1984 comedy show Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi - a serial that was the inspiration in the making of Ghar Ki Baat Hai.
    DNA

    Shah Rukh Khan had mentioned earlier, "Ghar Ki Baat Hai is a tribute to Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi." The petition filed was against Shah Rukh Khan's company Red Chillies Idiot Box, NDTV Imagine and the Oberois (who produced Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi) for copying the show without prior permission. However, Red Chillies, NDTV and the Oberois have won the case.

    Bhavana Sresth, creative director, Ghar Ki Baat Hai, says, "The petition filed by Neha Joshi was irrelevant because the official contract of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi was with the producers - the Oberois -from whom we had already taken permission, there were no
    copyright violations. Hence, the petition has been nullified."
