Mumbai, Apr 10 (UNI) The Bombay High Court today restrained film producer Rakesh Roshan from using the two controversial songs of his film ''Krazzy 4'' that allegedly contain music composed by Ram Sampath, who had filed a Rs 2 crore suit for copyright infringement.

According to the court order, the songs, featuring actors Hrithik Roshan and Shahrrukh Khan, cannot be used when the film is screened in theatres tomorrow.

Justice D G Karnik while admitting the civil suit, allowed the release of the film tomorrow.

Sampath has dragged Rakesh Roshan, his brother and music director Rajesh Roshan, and company - 'Film Kraft', Super Cassettes, Sony Ericsson and Saatchi and Saatchi to court for alleged infringement of copyright of his music.

According to a notice sent to Rakesh Roshan and Rajesh Roshan, Sampath said he had created 60 seconds of music ''The Thump'' for a mobile company's television advertisement and the same had been used in four tracks in ''Krazzy 4'', including the title song.

Sampath, who has received two Cannes Lion awards and an Abby Award, has not been given any credit for the track whereas Rajesh Roshan has been given credit for the same.

In the suit, he had urged the court to give an injunction against 'Roshans' from using the track in the film and was seeking Rs 2 crore as damages from them.

However, Rajesh Roshan had, earlier, claimed that the music was an original creation.

The court heard the music of the advertisement and the film before taking up the matter today.
