There is big trouble for Kirik Party which is set for release this Friday. Audio company Lahari has brought a stay on the release of the film but only if the song they have objected to is used.
The contention is over the song, Hey Who Are You, which is part of the film. According to Lahari this song's tune is copied from the song Madyaratrili Highway Rasteli from the film Shanti Kranti. The original song's composition is by Hamsalekha. But Lahari has the copyrights to it.
The makers of Kirik Party say it is only a homage to the songs of Hamsalekha and Ravichandran and not a copy. But the court in Bengaluru has given a stay on Wednesday.
However the film can be released if the song is deleted. With just one more day to go for the film's release there is a big problem for the film starring Rakshit Shetty and directed by Rishab Shetty.
The film has created a huge curiosity across Karnataka and Jayanna Combines is releasing it.
