Actor Jackie Shroff has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court seeking protection for his name, likeness, and the use of his nickname 'Bhidu' without authorisation, as per a report by India Today.

On Tuesday, 14 May, Jackie took legal action against multiple entities for unauthorized use of his name, images and voice.

In continuation of the report, Jackie Shroff's case is set for a hearing on 15 May with the court possibly issuing an interim order after tomorrow's proceedings. Advocate Pravin Anand, representing Shroff, informed the court that his images have been used in offensive memes, and his voice has been misappropriated for similar purposes in some cases.

In his plea before the High Court, the veteran actor reportedly seeks protection for his names Jackie Shroff, Jackie, Jaggu Dada, and Bhidu, stating that his attributes cannot be used without his authorisation on any platform.

Anil Kapoor had previously made a similar plea over the use of the word 'Jhakaas' and other aspects of his personality that were being misused. The actor won the case.
