  • Actress Tamannaah Bhatia summoned by Maharashtra Cyber over her involvement in unauthorized IPL streaming on the Fairplay App.
  • Previous questioning of rapper Badshah and summoning of actor Sanjay Dutt highlight the seriousness of the case.
  • Promotion of Fairplay app by Bollywood personalities led to substantial financial losses for official IPL broadcasters like Viacom.

Actress Tamannaah Bhatia finds herself in hot water as she’s summoned by Maharashtra Cyber for her role in the unauthorized streaming of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) on the Fairplay App. This summons comes after similar actions taken against rapper Badshah and actor Sanjay Dutt. While Badshah was previously questioned in the case, Dutt has requested time to appear before the agency, citing his absence from India.

The involvement of Bollywood personalities like Bhatia, Badshah, and Dutt in promoting the Fairplay app, which lacks official broadcasting rights for the IPL, has led to significant financial losses for official broadcasters like Viacom. This incident underscores the seriousness of the matter, as Maharashtra Cyber seeks to address the unauthorized streaming issue and hold those involved accountable.

The Fairplay app, primarily a betting application for the Indian market, allows users to start betting with a minimum deposit of Rs 500. Its availability on both Android and iOS platforms has contributed to its widespread use, but the promotion of IPL streaming on the app by Bollywood figures has raised legal concerns. As the investigation unfolds, the summons issued to Tamannaah Bhatia signals the agency’s determination to address the unauthorized streaming issue and protect the rights of official broadcasters.
