Bollywood actor and producer Anil Kapoor is taking proactive steps to safeguard his Publicity and Personality rights. He recently filed a legal suit in the Delhi High Court, seeking a permanent injunction against the unauthorized use of his name, voice, signature, image, or any other attribute uniquely associated with him, especially for commercial purposes. In an age marked by widespread sharing of digital content, Kapoor’s move underscores his commitment to protecting his identity and reputation.

Anil Kapoor expressed his reasons for initiating the legal action, stating, “I had filed a suit in Delhi High Court through my lawyer Mr. Ameet Naik for the protection of my personality rights, including my name, image, likeness, voice, and other attributes of my personality against any misuse, including on digital media. The suit has various instances of misuse of my attributes.”

He further clarified his intentions, saying, “The court has, after a detailed hearing, granted an order recognizing my personality rights and restraining all offenders from misusing my personality attributes, including my name, image, likeness, voice, etc., without my permission in any manner, including through artificial intelligence, deep fakes, GIFs, etc. My intention is not to interfere with anyone’s freedom of expression or to penalize anyone. My personality is my life’s work, and I’ve worked hard to build it.”

The Delhi High Court’s ruling ensures that Anil Kapoor’s name, likeness, voice, or any other aspect of his identity cannot be utilized to create items, ringtones, or any other products. Additionally, the court has prohibited the use of artificial intelligence systems to manipulate his image and the utilization of his image in GIFs for financial gain or commercial purposes.

On the professional front, Anil Kapoor’s film Thank You For Coming, produced by AKFCN, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and received a standing ovation. The movie is slated for release on October 6, 2023. Kapoor’s recent cameo in Jeremy Renner’s Rennervations garnered critical acclaim. His upcoming projects include Animal with Ranbir Kapoor and Fighter with Hrithik Roshan.
