The Bombay High Court Tuesday directed Amazon Prime India to take down a Telugu movie until its makers delete a scene in which an actor’s photograph was allegedly used without her consent.

A single-judge bench of Justice Gautam S Patel on March 2 heard a defamation suit by model and actor Sakshi Malik against Venkateswara Creations Pvt Ltd for allegedly using her photograph without permission in their movie ‘V’, which was released on September 5, 2020, and has been available on Amazon Prime.

As per Malik’s suit, she had commissioned a photographer in 2017 for creating a portfolio. “In August 2017, she (Malik) posted some photographs from the portfolio on her Instagram account. One of these photos was used in a scene of the Telugu movie where there is a reference to a female escort or a commercial sex worker,” the plea said.
