A court on Friday stayed the release of a short film based on TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who had allegedly committed suicide last year.
Actor-producer Rahul Raj Singh, her former boyfriend, moved the court, seeking to stop the film's release.
"The court stayed the release and asked the director Kamya Panjabi and producer Neru Shah to file their replies tomorrow," said advocate Shreyansh Mithare, Rahul's lawyer.
Rahul, accused of abetting the suicide, contended that the release of the film may prejudice the case against him.
Pratyusha (24), who rose to fame with TV serial 'Balika Vadhu', allegedly hanged herself at her Mumbai apartment on April 1, 2016.
