Now, according to a report by DNA, the fight that reportedly stemmed from the disagreements regarding the film's release date, has now taken its course to the courts. Prernaa Arora's KriArj Entertainment has issued a legal statement against Abhishek Kapoor and his production firm Guy in the Sky Pictures.

Here's an excerpt from the statement, as reported by DNA:

"Guy In The Sky Pictures is trying to wriggle out of a binding agreement. KriArj Entertainment and T-Series continue to own the film as it’s co-producers along with Balaji and also own its exclusive distribution rights. We are seeking legal recourse against Abhishek Kapoor and his production company for the various defaults committed by them of their commitments to both KriArj & T-Series .This includes attempts made by Guy in The Sky Pictures and Abhishek Kapoor to cheat KriArj Entertainment & T-Series after making them heavily invest in the Film. We no longer wish to make any further comments , the court proceedings will put all speculation to rest."

It was reported that Prernaa was not okay with Kapoor's insistence on slating the release of his film on 21 December this year along with Shah Rukh Khan-Katrina Kaif-Anushka Sharma-starrer Zero. Prernaa is reportedly in talks with Khan for an upcoming project, and hence didn't want any clashes with the superstar, even at the box-office.

Kedarnath stars Sushant Singh Rajput opposite debutante actor and daughter of Saif Ali Khan, Sara Ali Khan in leading roles.
