Now, the CCI has dismissed the complaint lodged by K Sera Sera stating that there is no substance in their allegations which stated that the producers had refused to provide the movie for an exhibition due to anti-competitive pact with UFO Moviez and Real Image Media. The regulator has further stated that there was no violation of Section 3 of the Competition Act which deals with anti-competitive agreements.

It all started when Pen India submitted copies of a news story to CCI which stated that the producer Viacom18 had filed a complaint against K Sera Sera with regards to online piracy of the movie ‘Force 2′ which released in November 2016. The contents of the article as said by CCI read, “… it was reported that the investigations conducted by Viacom18 revealed that pirated copies had originated from the copy that was sent to the informant (K Sera Sera) for digital integration.” (Also Read:

So while passing the verdict, the CCI observed that the decision of Pen India and Boundscript Motion Pictures to refuse to provide the content of ‘Kahaani 2’ to K Sera Sera, doesn’t make it anti-competitive and unreasonable.
