Speaking to The Express Tribune, Soomar revealed today, "The court has passed an order and stated that the production house is not allowed to release any upcoming teasers, trailers, posters or songs without mentioning my name, at least until the next hearing."
The stylist obtained the court order on May 3.
Soomar continued that he wants the production house to issue him a public apology. "I want MD productions to tender an unconditional written apology. Apart from that I would like to receive my due credit in the film. MD Productions has a record of misusing youngsters' talent."
Considering the court order that has been passed against the release of any film material, it's still unclear when viewers would be able to watch the much-awaited film.
The case was filed claiming damages and restraining order against the vice president, production head of MD Films and MD Productions. HUM TV has been also mentioned as the proforma party on the legal papers as it is the official distributor of the film Parwaaz Hai Junoon.
