New Delhi. Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has moved the Delhi High Court against its order refusing to stay the ‘online streaming’ of a film based on his son’s life. A bench of Justice Yashwant Verma and Justice Dharmesh Sharma issued notices to several people, including filmmakers, on Krishna Kishore Singh’s appeal against the single judge’s decision. The actor’s father had accused him of taking ‘undue commercial advantage’ by making a film on his late son’s life.
The family opposed the online release of Sushant Singh Rajput’s biopic ‘Nyay: The Justice’, but last time the court refused to ban it. Now the actor’s father has moved the Delhi High Court.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father’s lawyer Varun Singh argued in the court that apart from violating the personality rights of the actor, this film also violates the privacy of the family members, which cannot be allowed. At the same time, the lawyer appearing for the producers of the film said that the right to privacy cannot be claimed after the death of a person.
The court said that the matter is sub judice and asked all to file their reply on the appeal. Sushant’s father has said in the appeal that many people are writing films, web-series and books etc. on Sushant without permission. Sushant’s family says that doing all this is against his reputation, privacy and rights.
Let us tell you that last month the single judge had rejected the application of the actor’s father. He claimed that the film ‘Nyay: The Justice’ is coming on an online platform. But this violates the ‘personality rights’ of his son, while the court had reprimanded him that these rights also end after the death of a human being.
