Delhi HC refuses to stay release of film based on Sushant Singh Rajput’s life

The Delhi High Court has refused to stay release of film ‘Nyay: The Justice’, based on the life of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and scheduled to be released on Friday. Justice Sanjeev Narula dismissed an application by Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh, seeking to restrain anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in movies.

The film, directed by Dilip Gulati and produced by Sarla A Saraogi and Rahul Sharma, features Zuber K Khan and Shreya Shukla in the lead roles.

“Aman Verma is playing an ED officer, Shakti Kapoor sir is playing narcotics officer and Sudha Chandran ji is playing a CBI officer in the film,” lead actor Khan said.

The film has a scene where Khan’s character is seen in a high state. “They haven’t shown him doping but he is high and that is shown. Then there is one scene where Rhea and Sushant’s characters are seen smoking and drinking while discussing something. Whatever the audience is learning from media reports (regarding drugs), little bit of that will be shown in the film, even though that angle is not being emphasised,” Khan added.

Sushant died at the age of 34 at his Mumbai residence in Bandra West last year on June 14.

The Narcotics Bureau Control (NCB) last arrested his former flatmate Siddharth Pathani from Hyderabad in the drugs case linked to late Sushant’s death. Pathani was Rajput’s friend and used to stay with him at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
