The Delhi High Court on Wednesday ruled that the next Nyay: The Justice film, based on the life of former Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, does not represent his caricature, name or resemblance, as it does not contain a biopic.
The presentation was made by the film’s producers and director, which premiered on June 11, against a request by Rajput’s father to prevent someone from using his son’s name or likeness in the films.
After hearing the arguments of both parties, Judge Sanjeev Narula upheld the verdict on the matter and asked the film’s producers and director to release the film until the court handed down its verdict.
The court has said it will likely hand down the verdict before June 11, but if it has not been able to do so, the film’s release will be delayed.
Attorney General Chander Lall, who is appearing as the film’s director, said the film’s release has been widely released and therefore they will not be able to provide any certainty to delay it.
In light of Lall’s submission, the court said that if the verdict could not be handed down before June 11, it will again take up the matter before that date and issue interim orders to release the film.
At the hearing of the day, the Attorney General told the court that the caricature, name or similarity of Sushant Singh Rajput was not used in the film.
