Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu-starer Dum Maro Dum secured the Delhi high court’s green signal for its release on Friday after the film’s makers assured that it would blur some scenes against an airhostess training institute.
Accepting producer and director Ramesh Sippy’s assurance that the movie will have blurred scenes of the airhostess institute and its logo, justice Manmohan Singh today allowed the film to be released on Friday.
Dum Maro Dum’s release was objected to by Frankfinn Airhostess Training Institute, which had sought damages worth R35 lakh from Sippy for allegedly depicting it in a negative manner. In a civil suit, the institute contended that one of the characters, shown as its student, was given a negative role tarnishing the image and reputation of the institute.
The firm also sought removal of the institute’s uniform, the logo and any other similar trademark in the film.
