Bollywood filmmaker duo Abbas Mustan have finally clarified the air around the legal notice that they have been issued for their directorial venture Kis Kisko Pyar Karoon.

At the press conference held in Delhi, when asked about the issue, actor Kapil Sharma said although he has not got any notice, he thinks it isn't surprising. However, the popular director duo talked about the issue in length and said:

Such kind of allegations are generally put on most of the films, before their release, which is basically to take out advantage. Their film was made in 2013. However, our film was registered with Writers' Association in 2008. Ideally, we should be the ones claiming the rights and not them.

KKPK, which also stars Elli Avram, has been issued a legal notice for allegedly being similar to the story of a Kannada film Nimbe Huli. As reported by The Times Of India, the Hindi remake rights of the film are with a production house in Tamil Nadu. And when the makers of the film watched the trailer of KKPK, they found it to be similar with their film and filed a complaint in the High Court.
