Some of Bollywood's biggest production companies including companies owned by superstars Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have filed a lawsuit against "irresponsible reporting" by some Indian media outlets.
It comes in the wake of the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June.
He is believed to have killed himself, but the case has fuelled months of speculation by news channels.
The case says the livelihood of persons associated with Bollywood is being severely impacted by the smear campaign being run by the defendants.
Indian media has been dominated by the actor's death in recent months.
A total of 34 producers and four film industry associations have joined the case against two Indian media channels and four presenters, who have not yet responded to the allegations.
