New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) Delhi High Court Monday dismissed Hollywood studio Warner Bros' petition for injunction against Mirchi Movies' forthcoming film 'Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors' for alleged copyright violation.

Warner Bros filed the case against the movie as the title 'Hari Puttar...' is similar to 'Harry Potter', Warner's franchise of J.K. Rowling's 'Harry Potter' book series, and, therefore, borders on infringement of its intellectual property rights.

But Mirchi Movies contended that 'Hari puttar...' is an Indian name, meaning god's son. Senior advocate Arun Jaitley was hired to fight the case in the court on behalf of Mirchi Movies.

'Hari Puttar...', about a lonely kids adventure, was earlier slated to release Sep 19, but was deferred to a Sep 26 release due to the ongoing case proceedings.

Directed by Lucky Kohli and Rajesh Bajaj, the film stars Sarika, Jackie Shroff, Zain Khan, Swini Khara, Saurabh Shukla, Vijay Raaj and Lilette Dubey.

The movie will now release Sep 26.
