With an aim to get his due credit for the IPL Awards as conceptualiser and project director, Gaurav Garg, President, Strategic Consulting, Propaganda Media & Marketing, now plans to file an application of interim injunction on broadcast of IPL Awards in the Delhi High Court, of which even Colors is said to be party to, industry sources have said.
If industry sources are to be believed, then there is already a pending date of May 13, 2010, when the hearing for the main suit, which demands financial compensation, damages, credit and permanent injunction to IPL Awards, will be contested. Besides this, notices and summons have already been issued by Justice Ravindra Bhatt of the Delhi High Court and sent to Cineyug and BCCI.
Industry sources informed exchange4media that Garg would be filing an application of interim injunction on broadcast of IPL Awards, demanding due credit as a conceptualiser and project director. It is also learnt that Garg will also be filing an application to the Court asking that Colors also be party to this case.
Garg said, “I would be most happy to see my concept becoming a reality, but justice should be done to creative people like me, and this exercise of taking a step against reputed professionals and companies is just to protect the rights of creative professionals of this industry and set an example for the industry to not take the conceptualisers lightly.”
