Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Jhund released on March 4, 2022, in theatres. Later, the film saw an OTT release on Zee5. Despite controversies around the streaming of the film on OTT, the Supreme Court refused to stop the Amitabh Bachchan film’s OTT run.
Amitabh Bachchan’s Jhund released on OTT on May 6. The film had landed in a soup after Hyderabad-based filmmaker Nandi Chinni Kumar alleged copyright violation. Amid trouble with the film’s streaming on OTT, a bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao directed the High Court to consider the revision petition filed by Kumar. The bench also said that the order of the top court dated May 5, 2022, would continue and direct the High Court to consider the revision petition.
