Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case and the Bollywood drug has come into light, several media houses have been keeping a close check on the matter. However, there have been certain media houses who were also seen conducting media trials in the case as Bollywood has become constant target on these news channels with derogatory remarks being used against the showbizwalas in the last few months. However, as per a recent update, industry’s top producers have hit back at these media houses and have filed a suit against them before the Delhi High Court.

According to Bar and Bench, the suit has been filed against Republic TV and its journalist Arnab Goswami and Pradeep Bhandari along with Times Now and its journalists Rahul Shivshankar and Navika Kumar. It was also reported that Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Karan Johar’s respective production houses along with major banners and even CINTAA have come together as plaintiffs in the suit. Reportedly, the suit is to refrain these news channels from making derogatory and irresponsible remarks against Bollywood along with conducting media trails of Bollywood personalities.

Reportedly, the suit asks the news channels to “take down all the DEFAMATORY content published by them against Bollywood.” To note, the news channels are accused of using highly derogatory words such as “dirt”, “filth”, “scum”, “druggies” & expressions such as "all the perfumes of Arabia cannot take away the stench and the stink of this filth and scum of the underbelly of Bollywood”. The suit also mentioned, “On several occasions, some of the Defendants have been PENALIZED and REPRIMANDED & have had orders passed against them by Courts for irresponsible reportage and defamatory content & have been found guilty of broadcasting incorrect news.”

This isn’t all. It also stated that the livelihood of people in Bollywood has been severely impacted by the smear campaign. “The privacy of the members of Bollywood is being invaded, and their reputations are being irreparably damaged by painting the entire Bollywood as criminals, seeped in drug culture, and making being part of Bollywood as synonymous with criminal acts in the public imagination,” the suite added.

I am not boycotting anything because no bollywood star is responsible for sushant's death, it's that simple. Public memory is short and everything will get back to normal, people are losing interest and want to move on with their lives (post it pv)

just count how many employees of these production companies depend on these actors public images, so expect their comments to overtake those struggling to make a living, it's delusional to assume their golden as..s would get outof their golden thrones to look at the poor in life, yelling for justice in this world

We knew Salman is a Gunda, but the druggie child molester Shah Rukh Khan-shame on you. Thank God we have an honest and brave Arnab Goswami in India. You Bullywood people, how will you guys face the people of India, we all know your true colors now. Go to Pakistan, we do not want you in Indai.

I am happy to see that the film industry has united to stop fake media but I think it's to late. Where were them while Shraddha, Deepika, Sara and Rakul we're treated like criminales? Where were them while these hardworking women were facing hate, bullying and harrasment because of the false accusations done by media. This only shows how selfish Bollywood industry is. I hope Shraddha, Sara, Deepika and Rakul find strong support sistems in their families and true friends.

Why don't these dimwits take a look at the derogatory language & content used in their own movies & when the censor board opposes, they throw a huge fit! The media has the freedom & right to report what it finds & what do these bullywood idiots want anyway? Everyone to just worship them & yell how amazing they are? Their ostrich mentality won't work. We're still at the surface of the iceberg regarding all the dodginess that occurs in this industry. Unfortunately SSR's murder's truth isn't fully coming out cause of money & power, but when it does, bullywood's foundation will be shaken! Not watching anymore of their movies here in NZ, these narcissistic, opportunistic wolves in sheep's clothing can eff off!

These bollywood people want to copy everything from Hollywood and act like superior to everyone. In Hollywood people get called out for their bad behaviour. So first bollywood should learn to become better people, just because people has put you up there doesn't give you the right to behave this way. In Hollywood Karan Johar dadagiri would not work. Nobody wants to start fight but clearly this people do favoritism. And don't support the outsiders. Bollywood obviously think Janta is blind but every person understands. So Bollywood get your act together before you start screaming. Show us that you are willing to change? In front you guys are on best behaviour and behind you guys are vultures.

REASON TO BOYCOTT BOLLYWOOD SERIOUSLY: 1. Too much Drugs in Bollywood and none of the Bollywood people are taking responsibility to clean that up. They have no moral duties. all of them are after making more money. 2. Movies money is coming from Underworld and they have their conditions and it increases the risk of terrorism 3. too much of child trafficking, money laundering, prostitution, escort services and shady business under the name of talent management 4. Bollywood bigges get lot of favoritism for movies promotions, reserved theaters and total fake praises of their movies. 5. Some good substance movies very talented actors but not big stars get disappeared do not get theaters to release movies. 6. Most of the Bollywood Biggies have turned into Mafia it is their way and they think they are the Ultimate God. 7/ Most of the movies are copy paste of south Indian, Hollywood, Korean, Chinese movies. Bollywood is bankrupt of Movies Stories and script. 8/ Bollywood movies are still being made for young men roles with Khans/Kumar who all are in their past 50's and look very old and work with the woman of half their age. Khans/Kumar/Devgan should be doing old father and character roles. 9. Most of the Biggies 2 Khans/Kumar they do not get into character they are always playing themselves. I did not mention SSR reason in this situation. It is time for a change we are tolerating all this and they get away with it, Bollywood is turning into very Dark Whole and we need a drast

Your 1,2,3 accusations without any substantial proof are calling for a law suit. These are personal attacks. The rest of the points are bullcrap. Top stars are still in business and theatres are monopolized because they are number 1 selling products.

How about you clean up bollywood if you care so much about your industry and reputation. Please also listen to the pleas to give more chance and equal treatment to outsiders.
