It Was Vidya Balan's Husband Siddharth Roy Kapur Who Spearheaded The Collective Lawsuit Against News Channels For Making Derogatory Remarks Against Bollywood- EXCLUSIVE
It can now be  told that producer Siddharth Roy Kapur  was the brain behind  the  collective lawsuit that the  film industry  filed against  the two news channels Times Now  and Republic TV for defamatory  remarks  on the  Hindi film industry.

 One of the  litigant-producers  told this writer,  “This lawsuit and the ensuing order from the Delhi High Court restraining the two channels from broadcasting derogatory content  against  our film industry is entirely  due to Sid(Roy Kapur). I don’t think we would have taken action against the two channels if   it wasn’t for  Sid’s initiative. He  personally rang up all  the  leading producers asking them  to sign the lawsuit.”

One attempted to get Siddharth Roy Kapur to speak on the  revolutionary step to protect  the film industry  from being maligned. But he chose not to  respond. A source  close to  Roy  Kapur  said, “He took the initiative. Now he will step back and  remain  quiet and let the law  take its course.”Amen to that.

For the unversed, film production houses owned by Bollywood stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar and others had approached the Delhi High Court in October and had filed a lawsuit against ‘irresponsible reporting by certain media houses’. The producers had said that the channels used derogatory words and expressions for Bollywood like "filth", "scum" and "druggies”, as well as provocative expressions.

On Monday, the Delhi High Court issued notices to the channels on the plea filed by the leading producers. The court asked the channels to ensure that defamatory content is not displayed on their channels or on social media platforms.
