Leading Bollywood filmmakers have filed a lawsuit in the Delhi High Court against "irresponsible reporting by certain media houses" in the latest offshoot of the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation. Some of the film industry's biggest names, including Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra and Farhan Akhtar, are part of the unprecedented legal action against two channels - Republic TV and Times Now.
The suit has been filed against Republic TV, and Arnab Goswami and Pradeep Bhandari of the channel; and Times Now and its top faces Rahul Shivshankar and Navika Kumar.
The case asks that the channels as well as social media platforms "refrain from making or publishing irresponsible, derogatory and defamatory remarks against Bollywood and its members". It also asks that they be restrained from carrying out media trials of film personalities and infringing upon their privacy.While the producers don't call for blanket media gag in the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation, they want a "perpetual and mandatory injunction from carrying on reportage and publication of material that violates applicable laws".
The filmmakers have demanded that the channels abide by the 1994 programme code and "withdraw, recall and take down all the defamatory content published by them against Bollywood"
