The Delhi High Court on Thursday declined to stay the release of movie, Nyay: The Justice, scheduled for release on Friday, purportedly based on the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
A bench of Justice Sanjeev Narula dismissed an application filed by Krishna Kishore Singh, Sushant’s father, against movie and other ventures using his son’s name or likeness in the form of a biopic or story.
The court noted the right to privacy has also been invoked not just of the deceased but also of his family.
“The submissions on this aspect are unspecific and vague. No definite instance has been presented by the plaintiff to show how this right is infringed upon and therefore, the plea is devoid of merit,” said the court.
The court also found merit in contention of one of the defendants that if information of events which have occurred is already in the public domain, one cannot plead any violation of right to privacy if a movie is inspired from such events.
