In her plea, Rakul said, “I got to know during a shoot that Rhea Chakraborty has named me and Sara Ali Khan for taking drugs, and the media started running a campaign against me. They’re showing my morphed pictures and pictures from film sets to paint a narrative, to hound me, and link me to some sort of a drug gang. The media is harassing me; they’re coming to my house. Please issue an ad-interim direction to stop broadcasting of maligning and defamatory content against me. Media trials violate my right under Art 21 of the Constitution, the court must interfere

The bench said that “There has to be some restraint. Media gets to know info even before the officers themselves. Reputations are getting tarnished.”

The court issued notice to the I&B ministry, Prasar Bharati, and News Broadcasters Association to consider Rakul Preet Singh’s plea as a representation and expeditiously decide it including any interim directions that ought to be issued.
