Sony counters Colors’ legal notice, to air Mika episode of Kapil’s show over weekend
Colors (the channel that broadcasts Comedy Nights Live) quickly slapped a legal notice on Sony, asking them to stop the telecast of the episode. Colors’ argument was that Mika has an exclusive agreement with Viacom 18 Private Ltd.

Now, Sony has responded to the notice.
The channel has categorically stated in reply that they have “no contractual or other legal relationship with Viacom18 Private Ltd” and hence, are not “under any obligation, legal or otherwise, to accede to the peremptory demands made in the notice.”
Sony also added that they were unaware that Mika was bound by an exclusive agreement to Colors.
So as things stand today, the promos of the episode of The Kapil Sharma Show featuring Mika are already being aired. The episode will be telecast over the weekend.
