'Illegal' IPL streaming app case: Now Tamannaah Bhatia summoned 

Actor Tamannaah Bhatia has been summoned on April 29 by the Maharashtra Cyber department in a case related to the illegal broadcast of the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on the Fairplay app, a subsidiary of Mahadev online gaming and betting application.

The Maharashtra Cyber Cell has already recorded statements of singer Badshah and the managers of actors Sanjay Dutt and Jacqueline Fernandez in the case.

All these actors and singers had promoted the Fairplay app to watch IPL even as the app didn't have official broadcasting rights, leading to heavy losses for official broadcasters.

In September last year, an FIR was registered following a complaint by Viacom18, which possesses the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for streaming IPL matches. The complaint mentioned that the betting app Fair Play platform was streaming the IPL matches illegally on their platform, leading to over Rs 100 crore loss for Viacom18.

Following the FIR, several stars, including Badshah, Sanjay Dutt, Jacqueline Fernandez, among others, were called in for questioning. In December 2023, an employee of the betting app was arrested.
