Mum­bai: Bol­ly­wood’s top pro­duc­ers have filed a law­suit against two tele­vi­sion news chan­nels for paint­ing the film in­dus­try as a den of drugs and crime fol­low­ing the death of a young movie star, they said.

Sushant Singh Ra­jput was found dead in his Mum­bai apart­ment in June in what po­lice ini­tially said ap­peared to be sui­cide. His death un­leashed fren­zied me­dia cov­er­age, with TV chan­nels show­ing his body, analysing his med­i­cal pre­scrip­tions and sug­gest­ing ‘‘black magic’’ was per­formed on the ac­tor.

The suit, filed in the Delhi High Court, has more than 30 Bol­ly­wood pro­duc­tion houses and four in­dus­try bod­ies as plain­tiffs. — Reuters
