After the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a campaign has been run against some of the big names in the Bollywood film industry through social media as well as mainstream media with an intention to malign their reputation. After Riya Chakraborty’s arrest, a drug angle investigation has started in Bollywood.
According to the news, it seems that Bollywood has become united about such media reporting. According to reports, 34 filmmakers have filed a civil case against some media houses in Delhi High Court on October 12.
Over the last few months, a lot of media houses have said a lot about Bollywood. Especially, when the investigation of drugs is going on, most of the Bollywood celebrities were linked to this and tried to describe Bollywood in a place where evil like drugs is dominated. The civil suits filed in the Delhi High Court include Arnab Goswami, Pradeep Bhandari of Republic TV and Rahul Shivshankar, Navika Kumar of Times Now.
