Bengaluru: Yash fans and movie buffs were in for a shock when the Bengaluru city civil court brought a stay on Yash-starrer movie KGF, that released in five languages on Friday.

The film was released despite the order. But now the legal problem has been solved. Producer Venkatesh, who had filed a writ petition against KGF release has withdrawn his appeal.

The 10th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) had ruled on Thursday night that KGF cannot  be released till January 7, 2019.

But the KGF team had filed a caveat in the high court and the movie was released without any hassles on December 21.

Producer Venkatesh had filed a plea on December 19, just two days ahead of KGF’s release, claiming that the movie was based on the real life of rowdy called Thangam and that he had the rights to make movie on his life.

However, the film has got positive response and made Yash fans happy. The film was released in over 200 theatres across the country. 

Two persons Lohith, Ratan too have filed an appeal against the release of Yash-Shrinidhi Shetty starrer movie, which is directed by Prashanth Neel. The plea is yet to be heard.
