What! No TV screening for Irrfan starrer ‘Hindi Medium’
Irrfan Starrer Hindi Medium was applauded for its satirical take on the Indian education system.
And this film did not come without its share of trouble.
Shortly after the launch of the film’s trailer, Bengali filmmaker Shiboprosad Mukherjee claimed the film was lifted from his 2014 drama, Ramdhanu.
In the latest development, the makers of Ramdhanu have moved court seeking an injunction against the Saket Chaudhary-directed movie.

The district judge of Alipore has issued a restraining order against the release of Hindi Medium on any platform, including television.
About the issue, Mukherjee, one of the directors of Ramdhanu said , “Our film Posto was releasing at the same time as Hindi Medium, so our primary focus was to ensure a smooth release for our project.
We finally watched Hindi Medium three weeks after its release and found striking similarities with Ramdhanu. It is then that we decided to move court.” Ramdhanu narrates the story of a couple going to extreme lengths to get their son admitted to a reputed school. The makers have claimed copyright infringement against Hindi Medium, citing that there has been substantial reproduction in terms of the storyline.
