Mumbai: The Delhi High Court today refused to stay the release of the film ‘Nyay: The Justice’, which is based on the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and is scheduled to release tomorrow
Justice Sanjeev Narula dismissed the application of Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh, seeking to restrain anyone from using his son’s name or likeness in films.
Directed by Dilip Gulati and produced by Sarla A Saraogi and Rahul Sharma, the film stars and Shreya Shukla in lead roles.
Lead actor Khan said, “Aman Verma is playing the role of an ED officer, Shakti Kapoor sir is playing the role of a Narcotics officer and Sudha Chandranji is playing the role of a CBI officer.”
The film has a scene where Khan’s character is seen in a high state. “They haven’t shown him doping but he is high and that is shown. Then there is one scene where Rhea and Sushant’s characters are seen smoking and drinking while discussing something. Whatever the audience is learning from media reports (regarding drugs), a little bit of that will be shown in the film, even though that angle is not being emphasised,” Khan added.
Sushant died on June 14 last year at the age of 34 at his Mumbai residence in Bandra West.
The Narcotics Bureau Control (NCB) had last arrested his former flatmate Siddharth Pathani from Hyderabad in a drugs case related to the death of late Sushant. Pathani was a friend of Rajput and lived with him at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
The agency had filed a 12,000-page charge sheet against 33 people in the Bollywood-narco abuse probe case linked to Sushant’s death. The Enforcement Directorate is also investigating the financial angles in Sushant’s death.
