Bollywood unites to sue 2 news channels and their anchors

The Hindi film fraternity has come together to stand up against two news channels for their alleged defamatory and derogatory comments against Bollywood. Some news channels had branded Bollywood as "scum" and "drug den". A suit was filed at the Delhi High Court against the two news channels and four of their anchors on Monday by the likes of Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Kabir Khan, among others. The plaintiff list also includes the names of The Film &Television Producers Guild of India (PGI), The Cine & TV Artiste, Association (CINTAA), Indian Film and TV Producers Council (IFTPC) and Screenwriters Association (SWA).

The suit stops these channels from conducting media trials of Bollywood personalities. The suit further asks the news channels to abide by the provisions of the Programme Code and to withdraw, recall and take down all the defamatory content published by them against Bollywood. This comes after months of extensive reportage on the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, where defamatory words like “dirt”, “filth”, “scum”, “druggies” and phrases like "all the perfumes of Arabia cannot take away the stench and the stink of this filth and scum of the underbelly of Bollywood” were used to describe Bollywood.
