Siddharth Roy Kapur Spearheaded Lawsuit Against TV Channels, Is Now Quiet

It can now be  told that producer Siddharth Roy Kapur  was the brain behind  the  collective lawsuit that the  film industry  filed against  the two news channels TimesNow  and Republic TV for defamatory  remarks  on the  Hindi film industry.

 One  of the  litigant-producers  told this writer,  “This lawsuit and the ensuing order from the Delhi High Court restraining the two channels from broadcasting derogatory content  against  our film industry is entirely  due to Sid(Roy Kapur). I don’t think we would have taken action  against the two channels   if   it wasn’t for  Sid’s initiative. He  personally rang up all  the  leading producers asking them  to sign the lawsuit.”

One attempted to get  Roy Kapur to speak on  the  revolutionary step to protect  the  film industry  from being maligned. But he  chose not to  respond.

A source  close to  Roy  Kapur  said, “He took the initiative. Now he will step back and  remain  quiet and let the law  take its course.”

Amen to that.
