The comeback show of actor Shweta Tiwari,Mere Dad ki Dulhan, is in legal trouble. Actor and Punjabi film producer Preeti Sapru has filed a case against TV show producers Tony and Deeya Singh, claiming her upcoming film Punjabi film Teri Meri Gal Ban Gayi has similar concept.
According to a Times of India report, Preeti has claimed to have registered the concept with IMPPA in 2017. Preeti’s advocate Abhijeet Desai was quoted by the daily as saying, “My client had registered the script with IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association) and The Screenwriters Association in 2017. Before filing the lawsuit, when we raised this issue with IMPPA, the makers of the show did not come up with any clarification and therefore, we had to go to court for infringement of copyright. We are hoping for some interim relief before the release date of the show.”
