Films that are based on late actor Sushant Singh Rajput like ‘Nyay: The Justice’, ‘Suicide or Murder: A star was lost’ and ‘Shashank’ were said to be in the making; however, nothing materialised till now. Now, as per the latest report in Bar and Bench, SSR’s father Krishna Kishore Singh approached Delhi High Court to seek a ban on the films based on his life. He has also sought an injunction against any 'other film, publication, caricature, etc' based on the actor's life. The portal reported that the actor’s father’s plea stated any movie depicting Rajput's personal life will influence the witness in the cases and also change the public perception.
Furthermore, Rajput’s father believes people are taking his death as an “opportunity to get fame by developing different theories/stories, at the cost of his and his family’s reputation.” His petition also mentioned that none of the filmmakers has obtained the approval of his legal heir for going ahead with the movie. “The late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput was a well-known celebrity and had become a household name, thus it is right time that courts of our country shall acknowledge the right of celebrity at par with an intellectual property right since the personality of celebrities are being misappropriated for wrongful commercial gains at the cost of fame, reputation and privacy..the use of his name/image/caricature/lifestyle without his consent amounts to a violation of the personality right and copyright solely vested with his son,” the portal quotes the petition as saying.
Earlier, a plea was filed in the Bombay High Court, seeking an order to restrain the release of a film titled ‘Nyay, the Justice’, refusing to grant a permanent injunction against the release of the film.
Meanwhile, the report further stated Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued a summons to the makers of the biopic and the matter would be now heard on May 24.
