Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu’s court drama ‘Mulk’ received an interim stay on its release by a session court. To those who have come in late, an application was filed by a lady named, Vandana Punwani, who is embroiled in a property rent dues dispute with production and Entertainment agency, Benaras Media Works Limited.

According to the application, the agency, in 2011, had taken Punwani’s bungalow on rent in Mumbai and wanted to convert the same into an office space. However, when it did not get the requisite permission from the civic body to convert the residential property into a commercial one, the company refused to pay rent to Punwani.

Post this, Punwani, in the year 2016, had approached the Dindoshi sessions court seeking to recover rent, which she claims is around Rs 50 lakh. Earlier this month, she filed an application asking the court to stay the release of movie ‘Mulk’ till the dispute is resolved.

Additional sessions judge M H Shaikh today granted an interim stay on the release of the movie and posted the application for further hearing on August 2. Vibhav Krishna, director Anubhav Sinha’s lawyer reacted on the matter saying, “Punwani in her application has made false claims that the Benaras Media Works has links with ‘Mulk’ director Anubhav Sinha. These are not true. We are yet to receive the court’s order staying the release. But tomorrow we will either seek clarification from the same court or approach the Bombay High Court.

“If someone has mischievously misled the court and if the court has really passed such an order we shall move a petition to vacate the same. Logistically all arrangements are in place to release the film on August 3.” he added.

‘Mulk’ is court drama which revolves around a Muslim family caught in a terror plot.
