The hearing happened as per the schedule with both the parties present at the court and Justice GS Patel ruled his decision in favor of Punjabi film ‘ Veerey Ki Wedding’. The judge said that he was not convinced by the Kapoor’s argument. He couldn’t find any misuse of the title as alleged, as the storyline and cast of both the movies were different.
