As per Bhagnani's allegations Fanney Khan's distribution rights were secretly given to Super Cassettes (T- Series). And he requested the court to order a stay on the film's release.
Petitioner Pooja Entertainment and Films Ltd said: “The reputation, fair name and profitability of the Petitioners has been adversely and unfairly affected, in a most unjustified and unseemly manner, owing to certain machinations and surreptitious arrangements between Respondent No. 1 (Kriarj Entertainment Private Limited Mumbai) and Respondent No. 7 (Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited New Delhi), in relation to All-India distribution rights of the film Fanney Khan, behind the back and unknown to the Petitioners”

After considerable debates, a Memorandum of Agreement dated 16.12.2017 was executed, whereby distribution rights of the film in all territories in India were given to the petitioners.
The Memorandum of Agreement said: “Shockingly, and without being in the knowledge of the Petitioners, it appears that Respondent No. 1 sold its remaining rights of 25% in the film in question, to Respondent no. 7 through a letter citing financial and monetary constraints, with the result that Respondent No. 7 was given the entire 50% rights in the film, which had earlier vested with Respondent no. 1 after its agreement with Respondent No. 6 (Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures Pvt Ltd) on 8.5.2017.”
Irrespective of the legal feud, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Fanney Khan will be released on 3rd of August
