Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film, Jawan, directed by Atlee, is one of the most awaited movies of 2023. The actor was recently seen shooting for the film in Mumbai, and some videos from the sets were leaked on social media. However, on Tuesday, the Delhi High Court ordered social media platforms such as YouTube, Google, Twitter, and Reddit to remove the leaked content of Jawan and block access to websites that allow downloading of the copyrighted material.
The production house, Red Chillies Entertainment Private Limited, owned by Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, had filed a suit against copyright infringement. The suit stated that two clips of Jawan were leaked on social media, which are a clear violation of intellectual property rights and are causing damage and loss to the film.
The leaked videos featured Shah Rukh Khan shooting for a fight scene and a dance sequence with Nayanthara. The production house stated that the leaked clips give away the actors' look, music, and other details that are typically disclosed at strategic points in time as part of the film's marketing strategy.
Jawan marks the first collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee, and the audience is excited about the film. The first look of the film was released last year. It was also reported that Deepika Padukone would make a special appearance in the movie.
The film is scheduled to release in theatres on June 2, and the production house has urged fans not to share any leaked content on social media platforms. With the Delhi High Court's order, it is expected that the leaked content will be removed, and the film's marketing strategy will proceed as planned.
