Paatal Lok Controversy: Amazon Prime Video’s web series ‘Patal Lok’ remains in the limelight. His connection with controversies is getting deeper. Following the complaint of Gorkha community and BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh, now Lok Sabha MP from Sikkim Indra Hung Subba has also raised objections against the web series. Indra has written a letter to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar demanding action against the series.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Indra wrote in his letter, “This is related to the racist comment made against the Nepali speaking community in the second episode of Amazon Prime Video’s original web series Patal Lok. Nepali is also one of the 22 languages included in the 8th schedule of the Indian Constitution. It is spoken by more than 10.5 million people as mother tongue. In such a way, the derogatory and objectionable comments made in the special scenes of the series not only hurt the sense of community, but also set the example of racist stereotype. This has happened when the people of the Northeast are already falling prey to racial attacks due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Seeking action, Indra wrote, ‘I strongly condemn the irresponsible and insensitive act and would like to proceed with unconditional support to the appeal made by the community through an online petition, seeking That the sublights be blurred and the video is edited and uploaded again. Also apologize on behalf of the producer.
In this case, members of Lawyers Guild Viren Singh Gurung have sent a notice to Anushka Sharma, co-producer of ‘Patal Lok’. Apart from this, an online petition is also going on to remove the special scene of the second episode in the web series. However, no statement has yet been made towards the makers of Amazon Prime or the web series.
Anushka Sharma is not taking the name of the controversy about the first web series produced, Patal Lok. Now filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has attacked Anushka Sharma in support of the BJP leader. The special thing is that Anushka’s husband Virat Kohli has also come under wraps of this attack.
Actually, BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh Nandkishore Gurjar has filed a police complaint against Anushka Sharma. His objection is to a scene shown in Patal Lok, in which an edited clipping of a newspaper uses the face of a BJP leader.
According to the BJP leader, the real clipping used, the BJP leader is seen standing behind Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. While using it as a reference in the film’s fictional story, the chief minister has been replaced by the series’ Bahubali leader Balakrishna Vajpayee (Anoop Jalota), but the rest have been shown the same.
In the midst of this controversy, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri shared the clipping of this news on Twitter and wrote – many people will not like this big news. Many people in Bollywood will laugh out loud and say, what is the big deal in this? Okay, ask a question of those people – what if someone makes a film and puts the photos of Anushka or Virat among the villains in it?
Vivek’s reactions are getting many people on this tweet. Let us know that Hades has been released on Amazon Prime. The story of this series, directed by Prasit Roy and Avinash Arun, is based on the investigation into the plot to assassinate a prime time journalist. The main characters are played by Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi, Swastika Mukherjee, Ishaq Singh and Abhishek Banerjee.
By the way, this series of Anushka is caught in even more controversies. There have been complaints from the Nepali community for using the word casteist, while some Sikh leaders have objected to the performance of Sikhs.
