    New Delhi, Aug 1: The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay the release of Bollywood movie Fanney Khan as sought by film producer Vashu Bhagnani over the movie's distribution rights.

    Mr Bhagnani's company, Pooja Entertainment & Films Ltd, claims that it owns exclusive rights to distribute, exhibit and exploit the commercial and non-commercial theatrical rights for "Fanney Khan" throughout India and had entered a deal with the co-producer of the film in December last year.

    He claims he paid Rs. 10 crore to the film's producers. However, the deal has not been honoured, he alleges. He had earlier filed two separate petitions in the Delhi and Bombay High Courts and on July 19, the Delhi High Court instructed Mr Bhagnani to not interfere with the film's release.

    "Fanney Khan" is directed by Atul Manjrekar and it also stars Rajkummar Rao. Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is one of the producers of the film.

    The film has been produced by T-Series, Anil Kapoor Films & Communications Network and Rakeys Omprakash Mehra Pictures. It will be released on August 3.
