The XI Additional Chief Judge of the Hyderabad Civil Court issued the stay order after petitioner Abdul Haleem Baig aka Sanober Baig asserted that the show is based on the manuscript of his concept, ‘The Jail.’ After conducting a trial and scrutinizing the petitioner’s documents, the court determined that Baig appears to be the sole owner of the idea and manuscript for the concept known as “The Jail.”

Sanober commented on the incident, saying, “I was taken aback when I saw the show’s promo. I’ve known Endemol Shine’s Abhishek Rege for a long time and we’ve met several times in Hyderabad to discuss the matter. We’ll get started as soon as the market recovers, he assured. The show is not only comparable to our concept, but it is an exact replica of it. I couldn’t believe someone could plagarise the notion so thoroughly. We filed a copyright infringement complaint with the court and were granted a stay.”
