Gurgaon: British radio company Murphy Radio has been shown in a "very positive light" in the film ‘Barfi!’, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur said here Wednesday after the firm sent a legal notice to the team for using their trademark.

The radio manufacturer claimed that their trademark Murphy baby (Murphy Munna in the film`s song) has been used without asking its permission.

The company now wants a stay order on the release of the film.

Kapur, however, said 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, told reporters.

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

Kapur was in Gurgaon along with ‘Barfi!’ starcast Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D`Cruz to promote the film, which releases Friday.

Also accompanying them were director Anurag Basu and music composer Pritam Chakraborty.
