The much-awaited movie 83, which is based on the victory of the Indian cricket team in the 1983 cricket world cup, has landed in trouble. A finance company, based in the United Arab Emirates, has sued the makers, claiming the accused, who produced the movie, had planned to cheat them of its rights in the movie. Among others, Vibri Media and its directors were named in the complaint, filed through advocate Rizwan Siddiquee.
Future Resource FZE filed the case before the Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate’s court against the makers of 83, demanding action under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code. Vishnu Induri’s spokesperson gave a statement denying all the allegations levelled against the company.
Read their entire statement on the case below.
“In the wake of the ongoing reports of a legal case filed against the makers of the upcoming film 83, on behalf of Vibri Media, we would like to deny the claims of the complainant and clarify the makers of 83 are in no way concerned with the case. The complaint of Future Resources FZE against the producers of the film 83 is false, baseless and motivated. Future Resources FZE is a minority shareholder in Vibri Media, there have been internal disputes between the promoters of Vibri Media Pvt Ltd and the complainant, which are pending in various courts. The complainant Future Resources FZE has been restrained by the Hon’ble Telangana high court from interfering with the movie 83 in any manner.This action of the complainant prior to the release of the film is motivated, a publicity gimmick and constitutes contempt of court for which Vibri Media Pvt Ltd is availing its legal remedies against the Complainant. The film 83 and the producers are in no way concerned with this and they reserve their right to initiate appropriate action against Future Resources FZE.”
