Mumbai, April 20, 2021: After the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput last year, many filmmakers announced movies on the late actor's life. Among the films that got approval from the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA), "Nyaay: The Justice" was one of them. However, the movie has now got into trouble after SSR's father filed a petition in Delhi High Court to ban the films inspired by the life of his son.
On Tuesday (April 20), the Delhi High Court issued summons to the makers of a biopic. The HC was ruling on a petition filed by SSR's father, Krishna Kishore Singh, who sought a ban on the film stating that people were trying to use the actor's death for their benefit.
The decision comes a few days after a new teaser of the upcoming film "Nyaay: The Justice" was released. The film is reportedly a tribute to Sushant. The teaser shows an actor named Mahinder Singh talking about his performance in the highly successful film "Cricket" and the relationship he shared with his manager, family members, and friends.
The petition filed by KK Singh states that people are using Sushant's name to get fame by developing different theories/stories, at the cost of his and his family's reputation. The petition, which was referred to films like Nyay: The Justice, Suicide or Murder: A Star Was Lost and Shashank, also states that none of the filmmakers associated with these projects took KK Singh's consent before going ahead with the projects.
"Nyaay: The Justice" stars Zuber Khan and Shreya Shukla in the lead roles along with Asrani, Shakti Kapoor, Sudha Chandran, Aman Verma, Kiran Kumar, Milind Gunaji, and others in key roles. Directed by Dilip Gulati, and produced by Sarla A. Saraogi, and Rahul Sharma, the movie is slated to release on June 11.
