The sessions court already dismissed the criminal revision applications of both accused Mahesh Kothare & Managing director of Viacom 18 Media Pvt Ltd challenging the order of Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate upholding the claim that Satyprakash Mangtani is the 1st Marathi 3D filmmaker.
Satyaprakash Mangtani had requested the Honble Judge Andheri Court through his Advocate Mr Nagesh Mishra to issue Non bailable warrants to both accused as they had already wasted valuable time & energy of both courts after receiving Summons from the Honble Magistrate Andheri court in October 2013.
The Sessions court Judge Honble Shri S.V.Ranpise in his landmark judgement stated that he did not find anything wrong in the order passed by The Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate who had observed that” It appears that a prima facie case has been made out regarding defamation by comparison and disrespecting the complaintant & there is sufficient material to proceed against the accused for the offense under section 499 punishable under section 500 of Indian Penal Code.”
He also stated that it was the 1st film which was made without the help of any foreign technicians in 3D format. As per the records no any 3D Marathi film was ever censored prior to certification of the said film “Aai mala maru nako”.
Now it is decided by The Honble Andheri Court Judge when Non bailable warrants should be issued to both accused.
In between Viacom 18 & Mahesh Kothare through their Advocates approached & submitted criminal writ petition at Honble Bombay High Court against original complainant Satyaprakash Mangtani to quash & set aside the orders of both courts which is under pre admission stage for next date is 16th November 2016.
“I am very excited by order of Honble sessions court Judge Shri S.V.Ranpise who showed his Honesty & Dignity for which I am proud of him.I am sure that now Honble Bombay High Court as well as Honble Andheri court will take appropriate action against accused who never wanted to give me credit because even media does not want to antagonize big personalities like them. I am confident Law will take its own course & accused Will get punishment at earliest possible”.
says National Record Filmmaker Satyaprakash Mangtani with confidence.
However where Viacom 18 had got interim relief from The Hon’ble High Court till next, Mahesh Kothare could not get interim relief from The Hon’ble High Court.
