Noorani, who also alleged threats by mafia at Dutt’s behest, sought a refund of the signing amount and the alleged losses of around R2 crore suffered in the project.
Dutt appeared before the court on Monday afternoon and sought bail, which was granted.
The court issued the warrant after Dutt failed to appear before it on two previous occasions.
Prior to filing the court case, Noorani had moved the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA), which had directed Dutt to pay up Rs. 2 crore of losses incurred.
Later, Noorani moved the Bombay HC to get the IMPPA order executed and the high court ordered attachment of two of Dutt’s properties in Mumbai.
Following this, Noorani contended that he started getting threat calls which were traced to Dubai and Karachi, but Dutt’s lawyers rubbished the allegations.
