Delhi HC refuses to stop the further circulation of film Nyay: The Justice based on SSR’s life

On Wednesday Delhi High Court refused to pass any direction to restrain further circulation of Nyay: The Justice which is purportedly based on the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and has been released on a website on June 11.

A plea has been made by Sushant Singh’s father Krishna Kishore Singh but a bench of Justice Rajiv Shakdher and Justice Singh rejected the plea against the film Nyay: The Justice on other platforms. Justice Shakdher said the movie had already been released and since the bench was available only for today, he was not inclined to hear it of issue notice. The High Court will hear the case on July 14.

Senior Advocate Jayant Mehta, who appeared for Krishna Kishore Singh, stated that the film had been released on the Lapalap Originals website and sought an order restraining its release on other platforms. Mehta told the court that while the film had been released on ‘lapalap’ website, the duration of the film was different from what was indicated earlier. Rajput’s father has protested the order that also denied to restrain anyone from using his son’s name or sameness in movies. The single judge had earlier said it found value in the submissions of producers and directors that if information of events which have happened is already in the public realm, one cannot argue any violation of right to privacy on a movie inspired from such events. The court had directed the filmmakers to render complete accounts of the revenue earned from the films, if any case of damages is made out in future and listed the suit for completion of pleading before the joint registrar.
