Bata India drags Prakash Jha to court over Tata-Birla song

NEW DELHI: Bata IndiaBSE 0.98 % has dragged film-maker Prakash Jha to court over a song in his new film, which the shoe-maker has alleged is “harmful, malicious and defamatory”.

Bata has sought an injunction against the song from the Delhi High Court.
