Maharashtra Cyber has summoned actor Tamannaah Bhatia, also spelt as Tamanna Bhatia, to question her about the unauthorised streaming of IPL 2023 on the Fairplay App, ANI reported. 

The alleged action reportedly led to significant financial losses for Viacom. The Baahubali actor is required to appear before the Nodal agency for cyber security and cybercrime investigation for Maharashtra on April 29.

Dynamic injunction for Viacom 18

The Delhi High Court earlier gave Reliance Industries Ltd's media subsidiary, Viacom 18, a significant legal victory. In March, the media company received a dynamic injunction, which prevented multiple websites from illegally streaming Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
