Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has not got any relief from the Delhi High Court. The Delhi High Court has refused to stay the films allegedly proposed, made or produced on Sushant Singh Rajput’s life after his death and dismissed the plea of the actor’s father. In fact, the petition filed by Sushant’s father has sought a ban on various proposed films based on the actor’s life.
According to news agency PTI, the Delhi High Court on Thursday refused to stay the release of the Bollywood film ‘Nyay: The Justice’. The film is scheduled to release on Friday. Sushant’s father had alleged that the image of his late son was being maligned through this film.
Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh had moved the High Court earlier this year, claiming that many people were taking advantage of his son’s death.
In his petition, Sushant’s father claimed that the late actor’s life was being seen as an opportunity at the cost of his and his family’s reputation to gain fame by throwing up different theories and stories. He had claimed that no such movies or other ventures could be undertaken without his prior approval.
The film, directed by Dilip Gulati and produced by Sarla A Saraogi and Rahul Sharma, features Zuber K Khan and Shreya Shukla in the lead roles.
“Aman Verma is playing an ED officer, Shakti Kapoor sir is playing a narcotics officer and Sudha Chandran ji is playing a CBI officer in the film,” lead actor Khan said.
The film has a scene where Khan’s character is seen in a high state. “They haven’t shown him doping but he is high and that is shown. Then there is one scene where Rhea and Sushant’s characters are seen smoking and drinking while discussing something. Whatever the audience is learning from media reports (regarding drugs), little bit of that will be shown in the film, even though that angle is not being emphasised,” Khan added.
Sushant died at the age of 34 at his Mumbai residence in Bandra West last year on June 14.
The Narcotics Bureau Control (NCB) last arrested his former flatmate Siddharth Pathani from Hyderabad in the drugs case linked to Sushant’s death. Pathani was Rajput’s friend and used to stay with him at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
