Salman Khan filed a lawsuit in Mumbai’s civil court against the video game Selmon Bhai. The game is said to be based on the actor’s 2002 hit-and-run incident. A temporary ban on access to the game has been imposed by the court.
According to sources, the court has barred Parody Studios Pvt Ltd and its directors from disseminating, launching, re-launching, or replicating the game or any other content involving the actor. The defendants were also barred from making any negative statements about Salman Khan by exploiting and making the game available to the public, or in any other way that could harm him or his family. They’ve also been told to remove/block/disable access to the game from the Google Play Store and all other platforms right now.
“When the plaintiff has not given any consent for installing, preparing and running such game which is very similar to his identity and the case which was against him, certainly his right to privacy is being deprived and is also tarnishing his image,” the court observed.
Last month, Salman Khan filed a lawsuit in court against the game’s developers. He stated that the names and graphics utilised in the game were caricature versions of him.
