High Court lifts stay order on Ghajini


Mumbai: The Madras High Court has lifted the stay order on Aamir Khan’s Ghajini. The movie will release in India and the overseas as per schedule.

The movie’s producers have deposited an amount of Rs 50 million (Rs 5 crores) in the court as security so that the release of the movie can go ahead as planned. The hearing of this case is postponed to a later date, which is not yet decided.

Khan adds, "The last 24 hours have been most traumatic. However, we are relieved now as the audience will get to watch the movie as planned. The stay order from the Madras High Court came on 23 December although the case was filed on 10 December. The Mumbai case is not true according to me. However, I am not the legal person so I don’t know much."

"Ghajini was a huge success in the South and Surya had done an excellent job in the original. I hope that I have been able to do justice to the film. Am awaiting Surya’s response as he was the one who went out of his way to convince me that I suit the role," he says.
