Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan's 'Veere Di Wedding' delayed over the film's title.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor's starrer ' Veere Di Wedding ' has gone through a couple of delays. The shooting of the film was to start in 2016 had got postponed due to Kareena Kapoor Khan's pregnancy. Now that Kareena is back in shape and in action to start her shoots we have fresh controversy coming out of the Jimmy Sheirgill's upcoming film which is titled, 'Veerey Ki Wedding' .

Since there is a prominent similarity between the two films, ' Veere Di Wedding' and ' Veerey Ki Wedding , Anil Kapoor the producer of the film and Sonam Kapoor's father is not happy. Anil Kapoor has written a letter to Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) asking for their intervention to resolve the issue as he claims that he had first registered the title for the film .

While Anil Kapoor claimed they had registered the title first, 'Veerey Ki Wedding' directed by Ashu Trikha insisted that they had acquired the copyrights and trademark for the title and have also registered the name with the Indian Film and TV Producers Council. As per the rule of the association a trademark supersedes any other registrations thereafter and since the major part of the film is 80% completed, IMPPA has granted the go ahead to Ashu Trikha, after learning about the progress.


Anil Kapoor therefore will have to opt for a new title as his film, ' Veere Di Wedding' as the shooting of his film is yet to begin.
