Karan Johar Seeks Legal Action Against Film Title for Unauthorized Use of His Name

In a recent legal battle in the Bollywood industry, renowned director and producer Karan Johar has filed a suit in the Bombay High Court. The complaint targets the producers of the upcoming Hindi movie Shaadi Ke Director Karan Aur Johar, which Johar claims unlawfully exploits his name in its title. The hearing, presided over by Justice RI Chagla, is scheduled for Thursday, just days before the movie’s announced release date on June 14.

Johar’s plea seeks a permanent injunction to prevent IndiaPride Advisory, along with producer Sanjay Singh and writer-director Bablu Singh, from using his name in their film’s title. According to Johar, the title not only unlawfully associates his name with a project with which he has no involvement but also infringes on his personality rights and right to privacy.

At 52, Karan Johar has established a significant presence in Bollywood, making the alleged misuse of his name a critical concern for him. He argues that the film’s title suggests an association with him, leveraging his widespread recognition and reputation without consent. This, Johar contends, results in irreparable harm and potential damage to his long-cultivated public persona.
