Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP reacted to the Mysore court's ruling to stop Maidaan's release. On Wednesday, it was reported that the Principal District and Session Court in Mysore issued an injunction halting the film's release after Karnataka-based scriptwriter Anil Kumar accused it of plagiarism. 

He claimed to have written the film's script and shared it with Maidaan's assistant director, Sukhdas Suryavanshi. They had several discussions about turning the script into a film, but nothing materialized. He claimed Maidaan was an adaptation of his screenplay.
