Sushant Singh Rajput News: The court wanted to know when the film ‘Nyay: The Justice,’ based on Sushant Singh Rajput, would be released. It was learned that the movie had not been released on time. The bench decided that the case should be rescheduled for June 25.
Sushant Singh Rajput News Update: The Delhi High Court asked on Wednesday if the film ‘Nyay: The Justice,’ which is said to be based on the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, was released on June 11 as planned. The film’s director and the actor’s father had previously made different statements on the subject.
The single court had refused to prohibit the release of a film purportedly based on Sushant Singh Rajput’s life or the use of his name or a character like him in films. Rajput’s father, Krishna Kishore Singh, then filed an appeal to reject the decision.
Initially, a vacation bench consisting of Justice Anoop Jairam Bhambhani and Justice Jasmeet Singh questioned whether the film was released on the OTT site on June 11 as planned. The court said, “A lot relies on whether or not the movie is released. If the movie is not released, the court may decide to hear the case now (during the vacation).” “Can the film be reversed if it has already been released?” the court said.
Senior advocate Jayant Mehta, represented Rajput’s father, said that the film had not yet been released, while senior advocate Chander Lal, representing the film’s director, said that his info refuted this.
The Court to postpone the release of films reportedly based on Sushant Rajput’s life on June 10. The court ruled that the films are not biopics nor factual details of Rajput’s life. “The right to privacy posthumous is not acceptable,” the court said.
During the hearing, Jayant Mehta stated that the issue is not just with the film’s release, but also with the method in which the single judge court issued the order. He claims that the film will infringe on his right to privacy and his right to a fair trial, and that it is tarnishing the actor’s reputation by the day.
The single court had indicated that it accepts the producers’ and directors’ argument that if the information about what happened is already public, no one can claim that films inspired by such acts infringe on their right to privacy.
The producers were ordered by the court to keep a complete accounting of the film’s revenue in the event that compensation was sought in the future. The petition had also been referred to the Joint Registrar for consideration.
‘Nyay: The Justice,’ ‘Suicide or Murder: A Star Was Lost,’ ‘Shashank,’ and another untitled film based on his son’s life are among the future or proposed films, according to KK Singh’s plea.
