New Delhi India], Mar. 31 (ANI): The Bombay City Civil and Sessions Court on Friday stayed the release of late TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee's last short film 'Hum kuch keh na sake,' based on her life. This came after her former boyfriend actor-producer Rahul Raj Singh moved the court, seeking to stop the film's release. Speaking on the same to ANI, Singh's lawyer Shreyansh Mithare said if the film gets released, then "it will have a particular impact on the judge and public that will influence the case." "In the film, Rahul has been shown in a bad light. In fact, the case is pending in the Dindoshi Court, where Rahul is facing serious accusations like IPC section 306 (Abetment of suicide). If we allow the release of this film, then it will have a particular impact on the judge and public that will influence the case," Mithare said. Adding, "Hence we have filed a civil suit and the court has granted us injunction orders against the release of the film. The matter has been kept for tomorrow (April 1) and the court has asked the producer as well as Kamya Punjabi to come and appear before the court tomorrow. For the unversed, on the first death anniversary of Pratyusha, her good friend, Kamya was supposed to release the former's last short film 'Hum Kuchh Kah Na Sakey.' The promo for the short film was released on March 27 that took internet by storm. The 36-second promo has reference of Pratyusha's boyfriend at the time, Rahul Raj Singh to her issues with alcoholism. The creepiest part in it is the alarming resemblance to the real life issues that the late 'Balika Vadhu' star was battling at the time. The trailer also sees Kamya reciting a powerful verse from the film, "Har ashq ki and dastaan hai, Kuch beh gaye, kuch reh gaye (Every tear has a tale to tell, while some find a way, some die away)." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="et" dir="ltr">Jitna rokoge utna aage badungi..!!! <a href="https://t.co/IO3yzA8KD1">pic.twitter.com/IO3yzA8KD1</a></p>&mdash; Kamya Punjabi (@iamkamyapunjabi) <a href="https://twitter.com/iamkamyapunjabi/status/847043095896248321">March 29, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Miss you my chhotu.... <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PratyushaBanerjee?src=hash">#PratyushaBanerjee</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/1stapril?src=hash">#1stapril</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/NNeerushaa">@NNeerushaa</a> thank you ?? <a href="https://t.co/5yK9QGpoi2">pic.twitter.com/5yK9QGpoi2</a></p>&mdash; Kamya Punjabi (@iamkamyapunjabi) <a href="https://twitter.com/iamkamyapunjabi/status/846332909711691777">March 27, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Reportedly, the 'Shakti - Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki' actress revealed that 'Hum kuch keh na sake' was shot one and a half months before Pratyusha allegedly hanged herself in her apartment in Mumbai on April 1, 2016.
