Apart from this, Amitabh Bachchan's film Jhund has now landed itself in legal trouble. A petition has been filed against Amazon Prime and the makers of Jhund by a Hyderabad-based filmmaker Nandi Chinni Kumar. The filmmaker alleges that the makers' decision to release the film over OTT platforms is in contempt of the orders issued earlier by the Telangana High Court.

The filmmaker had earlier accused the makers of Jhund of alleged copyright violation. Post a hearing of the case, the city court had instructed the makers of the film to file a counter on November 9.

Jhund is directed by Nagraj Manjule and is based on the life story of Vijay Barse.
