Streaming platform Amazon Prime Video is not taking the name of the difficulties being reduced. After the controversy over the Tandava web series, another controversy has now arisen. Now the Bombay High Court has reprimanded Amazon Prime Video on the complaint of actress Sakshi Malik. The court has ordered the removal of the Telugu film ‘V’ (V) from the OTT platform by Amazon Prime Video. The actress claims that her picture has been used incorrectly in the film. For this, they have filed a defamation case.
Due to this case was filed
Model-actress Sakshi Malik (Sakshi Malik) filed a case against the Venkateswara Creations Private Limited in the Bombay High Court. Sakshi says that her picture was used without permission in the film. Sakshi’s lawyer Suveen Bedi said that Sakshi’s photo has been used as an escort in the film. The High Court issued an order stating that using one’s personal photograph without permission is unacceptable, illegal and completely illegal at first sight.
Justice said this
Justice Gautam Patel said in the decision of this case that it is completely wrong to use photos illegally. At the same time, the low-level use of the photo is even worse. The court has directed the OTT platform Amazon (Amazon Prime Video) to remove the film within 24 hours. It was said that until the photo is not removed from the film, it will have to be removed from the OTT platform.The lawyer of Sakshi Malik said that the actress has a lot of fan following on social media. She has also appeared in Bollywood films. In such a situation, his image is being affected. Let me tell you, the Telugu film ‘V’ (V) was released on Amazon on 5 September 2020.
Sakshi Malik says that she had shot a portfolio of her own in August 2017. Its pictures were posted on Instagram account. One of these photos was shown as an escort worker in a scene of ‘V’ (V). He said that this is an attack on his privacy and it is disrespectful to show up as an escort.
Construction company claim
Regarding the use of Sakshi’s photograph, the construction company said that they had given a contract to an agency for this picture. He also said that he felt that the agency had already taken permission. The court has not accepted this answer. The court also said that after making changes, it has to be shown to the witness and his lawyer. Only then can Amazon put the film on the OTT platform (Amazon Prime Video). The next hearing on this matter is to be held on 8 March.
