After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, his father Krishna Kishore Singh had filed a petition, proposing a stay on movies that would be made on the late actor’s life. Sushant’s father had filed a plea restraining anyone from using Sushant Singh Rajput’s name or likeness in movies, however his plea was recently dismissed by the Delhi High Court.

Before making it big in Bollywood, Sushant Singh Rajput was a popular face on TV and had also participated in a dance reality show wherein he was declared the first-runner up. Sushant marked his debut in Bollywood with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che!’ and went on to feature in hits like ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ and ‘Kedarnath’.
