Jackie Shroff issues a statement expressing gratitude to the Delhi High Court for protecting his personality rights

Actor Jackie Shroff had earlier sought relief from the Delhi High Court to protect his personality rights. But now the verdict has gone in his favor as the court has issued an order to protect his personality rights. He issued an official statement thanking the Court for its assistance in acquiring his personality rights.

Jackie Shroff on his personality rights

The statement read: “I am deeply grateful to the judiciary for issuing an order that protects my personality rights, including my name, image, likeness, voice and other unique characteristics. For a long time, celebrities had little to no recourse against the abuse of their personalities. However, I am encouraged that courts have gradually recognized and protected these rights, as evidenced by landmark cases involving Mr Amitabh Bachchan and Mr Anil Kapoor. These precedents are very encouraging and motivate me to assert my rights.

In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, especially with the advent of digital media, it is critical to monitor unauthorized use and misuse of celebrity properties. Celebrities wield significant influence, and such abuse can mislead the public as to a celebrity’s association with certain goods or services. The abuse of celebrities not only dilutes our brand value but also misleads the general public.”

The Hero actor’s statement further read: “The Delhi High Court appreciated our case and recognized the need to protect the personality rights of celebrities considering our wide reach among the masses. The court upheld my personality rights and issued an injunction against those who misuse my name, image, likeness, voice and other personal attributes. These protections extend to all forms of media, including digital platforms, and specifically prohibit the use of AI, deep fakes, GIFs, AI chatbots, and similar technologies to exploit my personality without my express consent.

Protecting my personality rights is essential to maintaining the authenticity and respect associated with my life’s work. It also protects my fans from being misled by unscrupulous elements of society. I thank the judiciary for their support in this regard.”
