New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed the plea filed by Sushant Singh Rajput's father, KK Singh, on proposed biopics on the late actor's life. A single bench of Justice Sanjeev Narula has, however, asked the makers of the proposed biopics to submit that all the details regarding the royalty, licensing, profits made from the movies being to the Joint Registrar.
Some of the upcoming or proposed movie projects mentioned in the plea include 'Nyay: The Justice', 'Suicide or Murder: A star was lost', 'Shashank' and an unnamed crowd-funded film.
The petition by Sushant's father stated that the defendants (filmmakers) were taking advantage of this situation and trying to encash this opportunity for ulterior motives. He also claimed that in case a "movie, web-series, book or any other content of similar nature is allowed to be published or broadcasted, it would affect the right of the victim and deceased for a free and fair trial as it may cause prejudice to them".
Further, Mr Singh had also sought directions from the court to restrain any filmmakers from using his son's "name/ caricature/ lifestyle or likeness in their forthcoming project/films in any manner whatsoever".
