Film producer Vashu Bhagnani moved Supreme Court on Monday against the release of Anil Kapoor's latest film 'Fanney Khan'.  The film is scheduled to release in theatres on this Friday. 

Bhagnani has alleged that the film's distribution rights for India were given to his company Pooja Entertainment and Films Ltd. According to the petition filed by Bhagnani's lawyers, Pooja Arts had entered into an MOU with co-producers Kriarj Entertainment in December 2017 which gave Bhagnani's company exclusive rights to distribute, exhibit and exploit the commercial and non-commercial theatrical rights for the film across India.

However, Bhagnani has alleged that the rights were parted with others. Two petitions have already been filed in Delhi and Bombay High Court and are pending. 

The petitioner sought direction for transfer of the cases pending in the Bombay High Court to the Delhi High Court or to the Supreme Court and stay the release of the film.

Fanney Khan also stars Aishwarya Rai and Rajkummar Rao.
