The Delhi High Court on Thursday suspended the father of former actor Sushant Singh Rajput in a lawsuit against KK Singh for making films about the lives of the actors. He turned down the premiere of ‘Nyay: The Justice’, which is based on the life of former Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The film will premiere on Friday.
Judge Sanjeev Narula rejected an application by Rajput’s father Krishna Kishore Singh in an attempt to prevent anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in the films, the PTI reported.
For the uninitiated, Sushant’s father filed a claim to prevent anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in the movies. According to his request, there are some new or proposed film projects based on his son’s life: ‘Nyay: Justice’, ‘Suicide or Murder: A Star Was Lost’, ‘Shashank’ and the film funded by an unnamed crowd.
Rajput’s father has argued that filmmakers take advantage of the situation to make a commercial profit and therefore the right to freedom of expression and expression will not apply to them.
“The plaintiff (Singh) has confirmed that actors, films, web series, books, interviews or other materials could be published that would harm the reputation of the plaintiff’s son and his family,” the lawsuit, which seeks damages. more than two million filmmakers have claimed responsibility for Rajput’s family for “loss of fame, head trauma and harassment”.
He also claimed that “allowing the publication or broadcast of similar films, web series, books or any other similar content would affect the right of the victim and the deceased to a free and fair trial.”
The lawsuit said that the well-known Rajput Celebrity, “misuse of his name / image / caricature / style to give interviews means that he is violating the right of identity given to the complainant, also because of the acts of passage.”
The filmmakers of the upcoming and proposed films have come out against Rajput’s father’s intentions.
