No Similarities Between Potter + Puttar, Says Indian Film Boss

  • WENN
Latest: Bosses of Indian film Hari Puttar have defended the movie - insisting it doesn't infringe on the copyright of the Harry Potter franchise.

Bosses at movie giant Warner Bros. are taking legal action against Indian based studio Mirchi Movies, who are set to release a film entitled Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors, which follows the life of a 10-year-old Indian boy who moves to Britain, on 12 September.

Warner believes the name is too similar to the title character of the hugely popular wizard franchise, and are willing to fight through the courts to ensure the film doesn't hit cinemas worldwide.

But bosses at Mirchi Movies insist their film has no similarities to the lead character of the J.K. Rowling's hit books.

A spokesman for the studio says, "Our film bears no resemblance to the Hollywood film Harry Potter and it is a completely different story

"Our film has been in the making for quite some time and everyone knew about it."

The case is due in the Bombay High Court on 25 August.
