It seems the troubles continue to haunt Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Officer’ featuring Nagarjuna and Myra Sarin. The movie which received a lukewarm pre-release business is now facing a release threat. The film’s release has been stayed by Bombay High court.
YT Entertainment Limited had filed a petition that director Ram Gopal Varma had promised them to pay Rs. 1.06 crores before the movie’s release, but failed to do so.
Acting on a petition filed by YT Entertainment Limited, Justice SJ Kathawalla has restrained Varma from selling, transferring, and assigning any rights of the film and releasing the film or parting with its negatives or digital prints.
The petition came up for the hearing for the first time on May 4 and an advocate who represented RGV informed the court that he will remain present in the court on May 7. Accordingly, the matter was simply adjourned to May 7.
On May 7, Sudheer Chandra Padiri, a co-producer of “Officer”, appeared in the court, instead of Varma. He informed the court that consent minutes of the order had been prepared and Varma was willing to pay the sum of ₹1.06 crore to YT Entertainment on or before May 18, 2018, or before the release of the film, whichever is earlier, through an RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement).
However, Justice Kathawalla insisted that RGV should produce himself in the court and sign the consent order and accordingly, the matter was posted for further hearing at 5 pm on the same day.
Varma, however, failed to turn up, prompting the court to pass the restraining order.
