Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has put on hold the release of Hindi feature film ‘Rahasya', reportedly based on the high profile murder case of Aarushi Talwar, till June 13, but refused to restrain the producers from making promos of the movie.
Justices V M Kanade and Anil Menon, hearing a petition yesterday, refused to restrain the producers of the film from advertising or making promos of the movie, because no prima facie case had been made out for this relief. However, the judges said they were keeping the petition for final hearing after the vacations on June 13 when they would decide on the release of the film.
Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, parents of Aarushi, who have been convicted for their daughter's murder and are undergoing life sentence, had filed a petition in the high court earlier seeking a ban on the film's release on the ground that it was based on “distorted” facts about their daughter's killing.
Advocate Atul Damle, appearing for director Manish Gupta and producer UVI Films Production Ltd, assured the court that the film would not be released till the final date of hearing of the petition, i.e June 13.
