New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday exempted actor Akshay Kumar from personal appearance before a trial court here in a defamation case filed against the team of Hindi movie Jolly LLB 2.

Justice Mukta Gupta granting an exemption to Akshay from personal appearance said that the actor can be represented through his advocate before the court.

The trial court on February 8 had issued summons to "Jolly LLB 2" producer Fox Star Studios India Private Limited, executive producer Naren Kumar, director Subhash Kapoor, Annu Kapoor along with Akshay and others asking them to appear in court in a defamation case filed by Bata shoe company.

Akshay challenged the summing order in the High Court.

The Bata Limited footwear company had filed a criminal defamation case against the team of Jolly LLB 2 for using derogatory remarks and defamatory reference to Bata as a brand in the first official trailer of the movie.

The brand Bata has been deliberately shown in an extremely bad taste and the dialogue was intended to convey that Bata footwear is worn only by the lower strata of society and one should feel humiliated if one wears Bata footwear, the company had said in its plea.

The trial court had found prima facie offense under sections 500 (defamation) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of Indian Penal Code, which are made out against the accused and said there were sufficient grounds to proceed against them.
