"We have a valid, subsisting and irrevocably binding MoU dated 10th June 2015 wherein T-Series is co-producing the film Namaste England as one of the owners in the IP of the Film. Further, all rights in the music and audio visual of the said film has also been assigned in our favour. Any attempt by any party to circumvent and/or negate the said MoU or wriggle out of the contractual obligation shall tantamount to copyright infringement, fraud, unfair business practice, dishonestly misappropriating property, criminal breach of trust, cheating, breach of confidentiality and wrongful disclosure of confidential information," says Ajay Kapoor of T-Series.
