The producers of the movie were sued soon after the release of the film, following the revelation that the plot was lifted from 2007 film Namastey London. Producer Vipul Shah brought plagiarism charges against the film and the film was banned from screening twice, once by a lower court and later by Calcutta High Court. However, after the High Court decision, the producers came to a truce after Shree Venkatesh Films agreed to pay a "fine" of seventy-five lakh (7.5 million) rupees. This out-of-court settlement can be considered hefty since the making of the film took about 2 crore (20 million) rupees. Moreover, the settlement required the movie to display a title card stating 'Based on Namastey London, a film by Vipul Amrutlal Shah'.
