“It has also been impressed upon the counsel for the defendant (Rohit Shetty Picturez) that the defendant ought to respond to the plaintiff’s notice and also explore the possibility of an arrangement being entered into, failing which, on the next date, the matter will be heard,” the court said in its order.
