Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi has landed in a legal soup with producer Guneet Monga dragging the makers of the film, UTV motion pictures and Nadiadwala Grandsons to court over alleged similarities between Baaghi and Indonesian action thriller, The Raid:Redemption whose remake rights Monga owns in India.
Speaking to IndianExpress.com, Monga said, ” We have filed for injunction because we have the remake rights of Raid and the original director and original producer of Raid have also filed for injunction with us. We have the India remake rights of the film. The court has given us a hearing listed for the 8th of April and that is when we will know more.”
When asked if she would be open to an out-of-court settlement incase the other parties offer the same, Monga said, “We are in court and I am hoping to know what the court says and we will all know. It’s an open case.”
The Raid: Redemption is a 2011 Indonesian action flick that garnered good reviews for its high octane actions sequences. The movie’s similarities with Baaghi allegedly relates to the fight sequences that Tiger executes inside a building. These sequences are said to be apparently similar to the ones displayed in The Raid: Redemption.
We tried reaching producer Siddharth Roy Kapur (UTV) and director Sabbir Khan but both remained unavailable for comment.
