Justice Manoj Kumar Ohri on Wednesday also sought response from respondents as the hearing has been postponed for May 25th, reports news agency ANI.
The report further reveals that Sushant Singh Rajput‘s father KK Singh filed the petition under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The plea states the plaintiff and his deceased has the right of privacy or a right to be alone.
As reported by ANI, the plea states, “None can publish anything whether truthful or otherwise or whether laudatory or critical about the life of Sushant Singh Rajput without the consent of Plaintiff. It is not possible to depict or portray the life of Sushant Singh Rajput without depicting or portraying the life of his family members including his near relatives and the Plaintiff.”
The report also stated that the ventures producing a film based on the life of the late actor are designed to malign the image of the son of the plaintiff and his family members. These ventures would also derail the investigation carried out by CBI.
