An official announced on Sunday that the Mumbai police have filed a case against unknown individuals for purportedly pilfering and disseminating snippets from the upcoming Bollywood movie “Jawan,” featuring actor Shah Rukh Khan, on Twitter. The registration of this case followed a directive from the Delhi High Court, prompted by a complaint from Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan's production company, Red Chillies Entertainment, as confirmed by an official from the Santacruz police station.
In the police complaint, Pradeep Nimani, the chief financial officer for Red Chillies Entertainment, alleged that the movie clips were circulated through some Twitter handles, and shared details about the users, the official said.
The CFO also claimed that people were not allowed to use mobile phones on the sets when the movie was being shot. However, despite this, the videos were leaked, he said.
A case has been registered under section 379 (theft) of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act, the official added.
