Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’ has been roaring at the box office ever since it was released in theatres on September 7. Given the popularity and success of the film, it has created a huge rise in pirated content with clips and the film being leaked across various platforms.
SRK’s ‘Jawan’ has been leaked across various platforms, including WhatsApp and others. To tackle this issue, Red Chillies Entertainment has taken strict disciplinary action against individuals sharing the clips or uploading it across various social media sites.
COMPLAINT AGAINST ‘JAWAN’ PIRATED LEAK
Multiple anti-piracy agencies have been hired by the production house to track down individuals and groups aggressively, who are then reported to the police to take criminal action for spreading piracy. The production house today has filed a police complaint with police inspector, Mr. Amar Patil, from Santacruz West, Police Station against people who are indulging in piracy.
According to a source close to the production house*, “We have already tracked down pirated accounts run by individuals across various platforms, criminal and civil action is being initiated against them for releasing pirated content of the film Jawan. Piracy is a huge issue faced by the film industry at large and undermines the hard work of thousands of people associated with the film. Such acts of illegally recording and leaking, amounts to cheating, theft, and infringement/violation of intellectual property”.
The production house has found that the nature of the pirated content infringement clearly indicates that it was unlawfully accessed and stolen by persons who are distributing the same illegally for monetary gains. Further, such an act would not have been possible without entering into a criminal conspiracy by the accused. Hence, criminal action will be taken against individuals and groups.
Earlier this year, the Delhi High Court granted a John Doe order in favour of the production house to take action against leaked videos and pirated copies of the film.
