As always, a controversy crops in just before a film's release; and this time on the anvil is Anurag Basu's film “Barfi!” which is all set to release this Friday. In this case it's no local entity who is raising a hue and cry; it is British radio company Murphy Radio.

Murphy Radio on Wednesday claimed that their trademark Murphy baby (Murphy Munna in the film's song) has been used in “Barfi!” without asking its permission. Hence, they sent a legal notice to the film's team for using their trademark. They also want a stay order on the release of the film.

However, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur on Wednesday said that Murphy Radio has been shown in a "very positive light" in Barfi! and added that there was no infringement and they would respond to the notice.

"It is true we have received a notice from them. We are quite clear that we have done nothing wrong," Kapur, managing director Disney UTV, said.

"The brand has been presented in a very positive light and we will be responding to the notice," he added.

Anyway, this doesn't alienate the thought from our mind whether this controversy is genuine or is it cooked up to garner publicity, though negative!
