New Delhi: Bollywood filmmakers have filed a case in Delhi High Court for “irresponsible reporting by certain media houses” on Sushant Singh Rajput case against two channels- Republic TV and Times Now.

It includes big names from the film industry which are- Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra and Farhan Akhtar who have come together against these two channels.

The lawsuit has been filed against Arnab Goswami, Pradeep Bhandari and their channel Republic TV along with another news channel Times Now along with their popular faces Rahul Shivshankar and Navika Kumar.

The producers noted that the channels used “highly derogatory words and expressions for Bollywood”. They listed the terms such as dirt”, “filth”, “scum” and “druggies” which have been used over the past few months.

The filmmakers also complained that the channels used provocative expressions like, “It is Bollywood where the dirt needs to be cleaned”; “All the perfumes of Arabia cannot take away the stench and the stink of this filth and scum of the underbelly of Bollywood”; “This is the dirtiest industry in the country”; and “Cocaine and LSD-drenched Bollywood”, as quoted by NDTV.

The channels as well as social media platforms must “refrain from making or publishing irresponsible, derogatory and defamatory remarks against Bollywood and its members”, the producers said.

They want the channels to “withdraw, recall and take down all the defamatory content published by them against Bollywood”.

Bollywood film industry is a “distinct and well-recognised class” that is a huge source of revenue, foreign exchange and employment, the filmmakers said.

The producers who have filed the case includes the Producers Guild of India, the Cine and TV Artiste Association, Ad-Labs Films, Ajay Devgn Fflims, Anil Kapoor Film and Communication Network, Arbaaz Khan Productions, Ashutosh Gowariker Productions, Excel Entertainment, Kabir Khan Films, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures, Reliance Big Entertainment, Rohit Shetty Pictures, Roy Kapur Productions, Vinod Chopra Films and Vishal Bhardwaj Films.

The media houses against whom the cases have been filed had also been penalised earlier and they were found guilty of defamatory, unsubstantiated and incorrect news, says Bollywood.
