Supreme Court rules on matter filed by disgruntled moviegoer


Shah Rukh Khan’s film “Fan” was about a fan who wasn’t happy with his favorite star, and sought revenge.

Ironically, something similar has happened in real life.

According to The Hindustan Times, India’s Supreme Court has ruled on a matter brought by a moviegoer who was unhappy with Yash Raj Films for cutting a song completely out of the film.

This complaint was made in 2016 by a teacher named Afreen Fatima Zaidi, who says she watched promos for the movie which included the song “Jabra Fan” and decided to go to the cinema with her family.

When she realized “Jabra Fan” was missing, she felt cheated and deceived, and filed a consumer complaint seeking compensation.

According to reports, Yash Raj Films had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court challenging a decision by the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission which decided to uphold the State Commission’s 2017 direction to make certain monetary compensation.

The Court has reportedly stayed the order from the NCDRC, directing Yash Raj Films to pay Rs 10,000, along with litigation costs, as compensation.
