The Delhi High Court has restrained cable operators nationwide from distributing, telecasting and broadcasting UTV's forthcoming release Thank You.

UTV had filed a civil suit in the Delhi High Court to protect the movie from pirated telecast on cable TV networks.

Speaking on the landmark judgement, UTV Motion Pictures CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur said, “Piracy has been plaguing the entertainment industry for decades now and is one of the biggest impediments to the growth of the business. This decision by the Delhi High Court is a milestone judgment in our ongoing efforts to tackle piracy and we are confident it will act as a huge deterrent to cable piracy going forward."

DSK Legal Partner Anand Desai, who appeared for UTV, will send warning notices to the cable operators across the country. Averred Desai, “Film piracy has reached gargantuan proportions, causing tremendous leakage in revenues of film producers. Cable operators have been exploiting the movie industry by illegally screening films on their networks almost immediately after theatrical release of a film. This verdict delivered by the Delhi High Court comes as a landmark judgment in curbing these illegal activities, including directing police assistance as required. This is a very positive step for curbing illegal activities in India.”

The SHOs and Superintendents of concerned police stations have been directed to render assistance to UTV for the purpose of enforcement of the order.
