Complaint Against Nawazuddin For'Abusing Rajiv Gandhi On Netflix Show'Sacred Games

An advocate on Wednesday filed a petition in the Delhi High Court demanding that certain scenes from the new Netflix series Sacred Games be deleted, reported Bar and Bench.

As per a Kolkata Police complaint report that emerged on Tuesday, Rajeev Sinha, a member of West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee, alleges that "Sacred Games has a scene in which the protagonist of the serial Nawazuddin Siddiqui is seen abusing late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi and calling him Fattu", which is translated to 'pu***' in the English subtitles. This comes a day after a Congress worker from West Bengal filed a complaint against Netflix, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and makers of the Sacred Games at Girish Park Police station.

Adapted for screen by Varun Grover, Smita Singh and Vasanth Nath, and directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, Sacred Games released worldwide on 6 July.

Sacred Games, which is Netflix's first Indian original web series starring Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles, was well received by Indian as well as worldwide audience. The complaint also states that the facts have been misrepresented in the show during the PM's reign. The show reflects back on India's political history including Gandhi's alleged role in the Bofors scam, and his involvement in the Shah Bano case. A police complaint has been lodged in Kolkata.

It is one of the dialogues mouthed by Gaitonde that prompted 37-year-old Rajiv Sinha to type his complaint.

The fourth episode of Sacred Games, titled "Brahmahatya", begins with Gaitonde accusing Mr. Gandhi of playing politics in Shah Bano's triple talaq case. She took her husband to court and won. Petitioner Nikhil Bhalla alleged that the scenes were derogatory to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. The Hindus criticized him for this. "To please them, Ramayan, the TV show, aired every Sunday morning when the entire country glued to their televisions".
