The Delhi High Court, in its order, has directed social media platforms like YouTube, Google, Twitter and Reddit to take strict action against those showing copyrighted content of the film Jawan on the platform. Justice C Hari Shankar has ordered several internet service providers to block access to channels that are showing content related to the film.
Red Chillies Entertainment has told in a complaint to the High Court that two video clips related to the film have been leaked on social media platforms. The first clip had a fighting sequence involving Shah Rukh. Whereas the second clip was of a dance sequence, in which Shahrukh and Nayanthara are seen.
The court said in its decision that some photographs and videos were leaked from the sets of the film. In such a situation, many social media handles can leak more videos related to the film.
