Aug 29 – The Delhi High Court has ordered the filmmakers of the film ‘Jailer’ to modify sequences in which a shooter wears a R.C.B. jersey. According to the Delhi High Court’s order, the sequences must be adjusted or modified by September 1st, and no theatres will display the RCB jersey.
“The Defendants as also all parties acting for or on their behalf including their distribution network shall be bound by the above terms and conditions. With effect from 1st September, 2023, in the theatrical depiction of the film Jailer the RCB team jersey shall stand edited/altered. The Defendants shall ensure that after 1st September, 2023, none of the theatres would exhibit the RCB jersey in any form whatsoever. Insofar as television, satellite or any OTT platform is concerned, prior to the release thereof, the altered version of the film shall be broadcasted/telecasted,” the Court ordered.
The IPL-based team filed a case with the court, objecting to the usage of the RCB jersey in situations depicted in a “denigratory manner.” According to the film, a contract killer wore the shirt and was sexist towards a female character.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore now argues that the use of the jersey in the film was portrayed negatively and that authorization from the team was not obtained prior to the use of the garment. RCB claims that the bad usage was done to harm the brand’s image.
It was also stated that RCB and the filmmakers had reached an agreement. The filmmakers have agreed to change the jersey so that it does not appear to be an RCB jersey.
