The Delhi High Court has dismissed late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father’s plea to put a stay on the release of a film which is supposedly based on the actor’s life. A petition was filed by KK Singh in order to forbid anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in movies. On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court was told that Nyay: The Justice (the film which allegedly based on the late actor’s life) does not depict Rajput’s name, likeness or caricature and that it was not a biopic on him.
Nyay: The Justice is reportedly set for a June 11 release. After hearing both sides of the story, a single bench of Justice Sanjeev Narula refused to stop the release of the film. According to media reports, the court has directed the producers of the movie to maintain an honest account of the revenue earned from the film via the sale of rights etc. There are various reports claiming that there are films being made about the late actor like Nyay: The Justice, Suicide or Murder: A star was lost, Shashank and a crowd-funded film.
