Jackie Shroff thanks Delhi High Court for protecting his personality rights, actor issues statement

Jackie Shroff, earlier this month, moved to Delhi High Court, seeking to protect his personality rights, restraining entities from making unauthorised use of the actor’s name, voice, images and signature phrase ‘Bhidu’. Following this, the Delhi High Court passed an order protecting Jackie’s personality and publicity rights on May 15. As per Bar and Bench, Justice Sanjeev Narula also ordered to take down a few links which were pornographic in nature and used the actor’s name.

Now, the actor has come forward and reacted to the quick action taken by the Delhi High Court and issued a statement. In his statement with the press, the veteran actor said, ”I am immensely grateful to the judiciary for passing an order that safeguards my personality rights, including my name, image, likeness, voice, and other unique attributes. For a long time, celebrities had little to no recourse against the misuse of their persona. However, I am heartened by the fact that courts have progressively recognised and protected these rights, as demonstrated in landmark cases involving Mr Amitabh Bachchan and Mr Anil Kapoor. These precedents have been very encouraging and motivated me to assert my rights.”
