Thiruvananthapuram: Delhi High Court has issued a civil warrant against actor Prithviraj.
The warrant is on a copyright infringement claim, filed by Canadian singer Loreena McKennitt, over a song, "Aaro nee aaro," in the Malayalam movie “Urumi” starring Prithviraj, Prabhu Deva, Arya, Genelia D'Souza, Nithya Menon, Jagathy Sreekumar and Vidya Balan.
McKennitt had claimed that music director Deepak Dev's composition - "Aaro Nee Aaro" featuring Prithviraj and Genelia D'Souza was directly lifted from two of her own compositions, "Caravanserai" and "The Mummers Dance".
Apart from Prithviraj, the warrant has also been issued against director of the movie Santhosh Sivan and the producer Shaji Natesan.
The Delhi HC has handed over the direction to issue the warrant to the district court of Thiruvananthapuram.
