Meetu Singh, sister of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, expressed on social media that she is “extremely disheartened” by Thursday’s judgement dismissing a plea seeking a bar on any film or other venture that may use the late actor’s name or likeness to create a biopic or story. The plea had been filed by Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh. “Extremely disheartened by the judgement.#JusticeForSushantSinghRajput #SSRians #SushanthSinghRajput,” Meetu Singh tweeted after the judgement, shortly after Delhi High Court declined to stay the release of the film “Nyay: The Justice”, purportedly based on the life of the late Bollywood actor.
A bench of Justice Sanjeev Narula dismissed an application filed by Krishna Kishore Singh, Sushant’s father, against any movie and other ventures using his son’s name or likeness in the form of a biopic or story.
Written and directed by Dilip Gulati, and produced by Sarla A. Saraogi and Rahul Sharma, ‘Nyaay: The Justice’ is slated for a theatrical release. A release date will be announced soon.
