The petitioners were shocked to see the trailer of Lockup
Mr Baig said, “I was in shock when I saw the promos of the show Lockup. I have been in touch with Abhishek Rege of Endemol Shine for a long time and we had several meetings on this subject in Hyderabad. He had promised me That once the market gets better, then we will work on it. This show is not the same as our concept but its complete copy. I don’t believe anyone can steal the concept to this extent. We have filed a copyright infringement court I applied and we got the stay order. If the show still goes on air, it will be contempt of court. I have faith in the judiciary. We will get justice.
