No Bollywood numbers in Chennai star hotels on New Year’s Eve
- Madras High Court have barred top four star hotels in Chennai from playing Bollywood numbers.
- Justice K. Kalyanasundaram has granted an interim injunction till January 20, 2017.
People in Chennai who are gearing up to dance away to glory to Bollywood numbers at several star hotels at New Year’s Eve parties, there’s sad news for all of you. Four top star hotels - Hotel Hyatt Regency, Green Park, Crowne Plaza Adyar and Hotel Westin, have been barred from playing over 20 Bollywood numbers by the Madras High Court.
These numbers include popular tracks from the films – A Flying Jatt, Befikre, Baar Baar Dekho, Singh is Bling and a few more.
Justice K. Kalyanasundaram has granted an interim injunction till January 20, 2017 for the above mentioned hotels.
Novex Communications had moved the Madras High Court against these four hotels seeking injunction. These hotels failed to take license from Novex Communications and they have not even paid the fees to play the music owned by the company.
In case you are wondering what Novex Communications do, they are an assignee to Zee and Yash Raj music. And as we are all aware of the fact that most of the hit numbers are churned out by these two music houses.
For the time being, it seems like these four hotels are going to have make do with some other numbers for the New Year’s Eve parties.
