On Thursday, the Delhi High Court refused to release the film ‘Nyay: The Justice,’ which is reportedly based on the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Justice Sanjeev Narula has dissolved a petition, which Sushant Singh Rajput’s father had filed, seeking a restrain on several films proposed to be made on Rajput’s life.
Sushant’s father, Krishna Kishore Singh, filed the plea in April after discovering several films have been announced on his son’s life. He argued that any publication, production, or depiction of Sushant’s private life is a “blatant and wilful” violation of the fundamental right to privacy. Therefore, it cannot be undertaken without the prior approval of his legal heir.
Speaking regarding the development, the representing directors and producers against Rajput’s father, advocate AP Singh, said, “It’s a matter of great happiness for us. We have won today. This victory belongs not just to us, but also to all directors, producers who made these films to give the right direction to society.”
34-year-old Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his home in Mumbai on June 15 last year. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is directing a probe into his death.
