A day after Yash Raj Films (YRF) issued a statement against Ajay Devgn Films (ADF) for filing a complaint against them with Competition Commission of India, ADF’s lawyers have hit back with a strongly worded statement that reads: A producer/distributor/exhibitor cannot be allowed to enter into a tie-in arrangement which adversely affects competition.

YRF has entered into a tie-in arrangement with exhibitors in a manner that it has made it compulsory for the exhibitors to exhibit Jab Tak Hai Jaan on Diwali (November 13) and two weeks thereafter with all 4 shows.

A tie-in arrangement in the present circumstances violates the provisions of the Competition Act, 2002. It further states, “YRF is trying to hide behind its dominant position in the film market.”
