The suit has been filed against Republic TV, and Arnab Goswami and Pradeep Bhandari of the channel; and Times Now and its top faces Rahul Shivshankar and Navika Kumar. The channels used “highly derogatory words and expressions for Bollywood,” said the producers, listing terms like “dirt,” “filth,” “scum,” and “druggies” used over the past few months. The producers also are upset about the channels using provocative expressions like — “It is Bollywood where the dirt needs to be cleaned”; “All the perfumes of Arabia cannot take away the stench and the stink of this filth and scum of the underbelly of Bollywood”; “This is the dirtiest industry in the country”; and “Cocaine and LSD-drenched Bollywood.” 

The media are at the other end now. And it seems they will be receiving some serious backlash from the public and the law. Stay tuned to Bollywood Hush for more news and updates. Share your thoughts with us through the comments below.
