Arrest Warrant against Bellamkonda

Arrest Warrant against Bellamkonda

An arrest warrant has been issued against producer Bellamkonda Suresh for failing to make the repayment of Rs 3.5 crore to a Telugu entertainment channel. In 2013, Bellamkonda produced 'Jabardasth' movie starring Siddharth and Samantha.

Bollywood's leading production house Yash Raj Films filed a case against this movie in Delhi High Court and alleged that the makers had copied 19 scenes from their movie 'Band Baaja Baarat' without permission.

After verifying the facts, the Delhi High Court has issued its verdict to stop the screening of 'Jabardasth' in the theatres and television. By then already a Telugu entertainment channel has bought the satellite rights of 'Jabardasth' from producer Bellamkonda for Rs 3.50 crore.

The channel asked for repayment and Bellamkonda kept delaying it and vexed up with waiting for long, the channel approached the court. In this gap, the total amount of Rs 3.50 crore grew to Rs 11.75 crore with interest.

Even after continuous appeal Bellamkonda Suresh ignored to make payment and so the court has issued arrest warrant against him. Once the police receive the court order, they are likely to arrest Bellamkonda. We are yet to hear the reaction of Bellamkonda Suresh on this arrest warrant. He might knock the court for an anticipatory bail or make a small payment to avoid detention.
