The Delhi High Court on Friday refused to stay the release of the film Nyay – The Justice. This film is made on the life of Sushant Singh Rajput. The High Court said that there is no nefarious intention behind the film on the extraordinary life of a human being. A bench of Justice Anoop Jairam and Justice Jasmeet Singh had said that it does not appear that making a film on Sushant Singh’s life on the basis of whatever is present in the public domain will have any harmful effect on his image.
The court said that the film makers do not have anything other than the things present in everyone, which they have used. No such script or story was written. Whatever is in the public domain, the film was made on the basis of that. It was an admirable theme for a film and he made the film. The High Court has also sought answers from the film’s director Dilip Gulati and producers Sarla Saraogi and Rahul Sharma in this regard. The next hearing on this matter will now be held on July 14. The High Court has also noted that the film has been released on a website and app on June 11 itself.
Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Sushant’s father, had submitted that the producer and director have made commercial use of the life story of an actor who committed suicide last year. In this case, the bench of Single Judge Justice Sanjeev Narula has also been misled by referring to the order of the old case. This film will violate the right to privacy and the right to fair trial every day. This will affect the reputation of the actor.
