Make My Day Entertainment has initiated the proceedings against Anil Kapoor's film company as it too is producing a film with the title of "Veere Ki Wedding".
Senior counsel Mukul Rohtagi said that the proceedings before the Rohatak court were initiated by the Make My Day Entertainment as a counter to the proceeding initiated by Anil Kapoor before the high court. Anil Kapoor has said that the case before the Rohtak court was malafide and with ulterior motives to harass the Kapoors, the film crew and others.
"Veere Di Wedding", being produced by Anil Kapoor's company, is in Punjabi.
