News posted by

Mumbai, Jun 16 (PTI) Children of legendary film-maker Kamaal Amrohi have informed the Bombay High Court that they would continue with the legal battle over the family property worth Rs 600 crore as they failed to arrive at a settlement. The High Court, in April, had suggested the children of late Amrohi to come together and settle their dispute amicably. Family''s lawyer Darshan Mehta informed the court yesterday that the settlement was not possible and that they would like to continue with the litigation. In view of this development, Justice R Y Ganoo, deferred the matter till July 12 and ordered the parties to maintain status quo till then. Kamaal Amrohi''s sons -- Shandar and Tajdar -- and daughter Rukhsar are locked in a legal battle over control of shares in Mahal Pictures which owns the famous Kamalistan studio in suburban Andheri. Shandar has alleged that Rukhsar and her son Waseem had stolen his shares from his house and sold them to M/s Sanchita Realty owned by Pune-based builder Avinash Bhosale. Shandar has also expressed his desire to bequeath his shares to his adopted daughter and actress Preity Zinta. He said he wanted her to take over as director of Kamalistan. Rukhsar has denied the charges and claimed the latter had received money for his shares and that he himself had agreed to transfer them. She alleged that he was being influenced by his brother Tajdar and Zinta.
