The ongoing dispute between Ajay Devgn and Yash Raj takes a new turn after tribunal orders inquiry against YRF, following Devgn's appeal

The Competition Appellate Tribunal, whom Devgn approached after the Competition Commission of India (CCI) rejected his plea, did find merit in the case and set an inquiry against Yash Raj Films.

An official spokesperson of Ajay Devgn Films said, `The Competition Appellate Tribunal has seen merit in our case and has issued notice for inquiring into the anti-competitive activities of the YRF about the tie in arrangement to block our movie Son of Sardaar on the day of Diwali.

While looking at the YRF's own damning statement that only 821 theatres which have already executed agreement with YRF for showing their film Jab Tak Hai Jaan on the Diwali day, had a so-called tie-in arrangement in comparison to 1,407 single screens for Ek Tha Tiger.

This leaves the balance screens, which have not executed agreements with the YRF to show Jab Tak Hai Jaan till date, to be free to exhibit Son of Sardaar without any tie in arrangement with the YRF.

This would include 586 single screens that had earlier shown Ek Tha Tiger. Accordingly, we would now be approaching all theatres, who have not executed any agreement for showing Jab Tak Hai Jaan, for exhibiting our movie.

However, if the above facts are found to be false, which would be proven through evidence after the release of the movie, we would not only continue to fight against the YRF's anti-competitive activities on our own behalf, but also on the behalf of the entire industry.`

When contacted, YRF official spokesperson remained unavailable for comment.
