Delhi HC Rejects Urgent Request to STOP Priyanka Chopra's The White Tiger from Streaming Online

 Priyanka Chopra's The White Tiger will release online today. Ahead of the film's streaming online, an American producer sought an injunction against the premiere of the film but Delhi High Court dismissed it.

Priyanka Chopra's The White Tiger is all set to release today, January 22, on an OTT platform. The film is based on the Booker Prize-winning novel by the same name written by Aravind Adiga. 

It has been directed by Ramin Brahmi and also stars Rajkummar Rao and newcomer Adarsh Gourav. 

Just hours before the online release of the movie, the Delhi High Court dismissed an urgent plea to injunct the maters and Netflix from streaming the film online. 

The application was filed by John N Hart Jr, an American film and theatre producer, and his associate Sonia Mudbhatkal, a filmmaker, who claimed that they had bought the copyright from author Aravind Adiga for the movie adaptation in March 2009.

Justice C Hari Shankar dismissed Hart Jr's plea and stated that he and others were "no stranger" to the production and release of the film and that they had submitted the application at the "nth" hour despite knowing that the movie was being made for the last one and a half years. 

The judge told Hart Jr, "You cannot blame the Coronavirus pandemic for your delay in coming to the court. You are coming at the nth hour and you are disentitled for the relief even on this ground." 

Senior advocate Sai Rajagopal, appearing for Netflix, told the court that the movie has already been released in the US on January 11, 2021, and further added that no objection was raised by the plaintiffs. 

Meanwhile, Priyanka has been sharing various BTS shots from the film, getting fans excited for the release. 

From sharing some light-hearted moments with her co-stars to posting a cute photo of sitting on a chair and goofily having a meal, Priyanka took to Facebook and posted some memorable moments from the film, which certainly show the cast had a ball while shooting for The White Tiger
