The Delhi High Court Tuesday asked the producers of various proposed and upcoming films on the life of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput to respond to a plea by his father seeking to restrain anyone from using his son's name or likeness in movies.

It is argued that the use of Sushant Singh Rajput's name/image/caricature/lifestyle without the consent of the legal heir amounts to a violation of his personality right and copyright.

Justice Manoj Kumar Ohri on the suit filed by Rajput's father, Krishna Kishore Singh.

"The defendants (filmmakers), taking advantage of this situation, have been trying to encash this opportunity for ulterior motives.

"Thus, Plaintiff (Singh) has apprehension that various plays, movies, web-series, books, interviews or other material may be published which would harm the reputation of the son of the plaintiff and his family," claimed the suit, filed through advocates Akshay Dev, Varun Singh, Abhijeet Pandey and Samruddhi Bendbhar.
