Bombay High Court on Tuesday banned Venkateswara Creations Pvt Ltd from releasing Telugu film V on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform. The order came after he heard a plea from actor Sakshi Malik who demanded the removal of a scene from the film in which a photo from his portfolio was being used without his permission.
The court further ordered the directors of the film to televise the film in all versions, regardless of language and subtitles, until the scene is deleted.
Sakshi Malik had filed a libel claim seeking a permanent injunction. However, Judge GS Patel hearing the case granted an interim order prohibiting the defendants from showing or showing the film on any media platform until the scene was deleted; subject to a specific order of the Court after its removal.
In the film, footage of Sakshi was used without her permission in reference to a female escort or sex worker. The film V, posted on September 5, 2020 on Amazon Prime, depicted her image on a mobile screen that was taken without her consent from her Instagram account.
The court gave Amazon Prime 24 hours to shut down the availability of the film. The court also said that the defendants must completely remove all images of the plaintiff actor used in the film and that simple pixelation or blurring will not be enough. The court also said that no media platform could release the re-edited version of the film without a specific court ruling.
