The shooting of Zubair Khan and Shreya Shukla starrer film ‘Nyaya: The Justice’ has been completed.
The Bombay High Court has questioned a social worker named Manish Mishra over his petition, which he had pitched against the upcoming film ‘Nyaya: The Justice’. Mishra, who describes himself as a fan of Sushant Singh Rajput, has claimed in the petition that this film on the life of the actor will tarnish his image by tampering with the facts. Hearing this, on Wednesday, Justice Prithviraj Chavan asked Mishra, “How do you know what they are going to show?”
Demanded a ban on the film
Manish Mishra filed a lawsuit against ‘Justice: The Justice’ in Dindoshi Civil Court on 22 December 2020, which was dismissed by the court. Mishra later challenged it in the High Court, which was heard on Wednesday. Mishra said in his petition that investigation is going on in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. It is yet to be decided whether Sushant committed suicide or was murdered. Producers should therefore be prevented from releasing, exhibiting, showcasing and advertising ‘Justice: The Justice’.
Producers claim – we did not touch police investigation
During the hearing, Justice Chavan questioned Mishra’s personal interest in the case, while his lawyer Chetan Aggarwal said, “My clients are businessmen, philanthropists and followers of Sushant Singh Rajput”. Chetan claimed that the title of the film reveals its content. While the producer and lawyer of the film, Ashok Saraogi, argued that he has not touched the ongoing police investigation on Sushant’s death.
Saraogi also cited the Dindoshi court judge’s statement during this period. He said that the judge of Dindoshi had asked how until the film is released, how can it be said that the facts have been tampered with. The next hearing of the case will be held in the first week of March.
