Sanober first filed a legal complaint about plagiarism in February after watching a promo show. Last month, Sanober reportedly appealed to the Supreme Court (SC) to remain on the show. However, he was directed to a lower court, which allegedly limited the creator Lock Up from the streaming reality show on April 29.
According to reports, the case was registered with the Kanchanbagh police in Hyderabad on Wednesday. The complaint against Ekta Kapoor, Abhishek Rege and one other person was made under sections 420, 406 and 469 of the Indian Penal Code.
Creative Lock Up have not yet issued an official statement on the matter.
