Firstly, he contended that the current suit is premature, asserting that the 70-day period from the theatrical release on December 1, 2023, has not yet passed, making revenue statement sharing with Cine1 unnecessary at this juncture. 

Furthermore, Mr Sibal stated that over a span of four years, Cine1 failed to make timely efforts to seek information about costs, allowing the movie’s release without objection. He argued that Cine1 was well aware that these expenses are being incurred in the normal course, T-Series has never denied access to financial statements and third-party agreements and has been willing to share the same. 

An industry source also said, “It is traditional trade practice that T Series is following in the case of Animal. And one also knows first the cost is covered by the P&A and OTT payment comes only after six months. Besides it has been only one and a half months since the release of the film  Also T Series is definitely to honour the commitment of  sharing profit, so why is Cine1 in a hurry.”

For the unversed, the next hearing will be held on Thursday, January 18.
