London, September 13 (ANI): The release of the film Hari Putter has been postponed following a judgement passed by a court in India, after a lawsuit was filed by Warner Bros.

A court in India has postponed the release of a film entitled Hari Puttar, after complaints from the makers of the blockbuster Harry Potter films.

The Hollywood company had raised concern after finding much similarity to its patented Harry Potter title.

Mirchi Movies, the makers of the Hari Puttar have denied all accusations, insisting Hari as a favourite Indian name, while Puttar as a ‘’son” in Hindi and Punjabi, reports BBC.

Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors, is a story of a ten-year-old boy who moves to England with his parents and gets involved in a plot to save the world.

Initially scheduled to release on the 12 th September, the film will not reach theatres before the end of the month. (ANI)
