This is regarding sexist slur hurled against the Nepali speaking community in the second episode of the original series Paatal Lok which is being streamed in Amazon Prime Video. In his complaint, Nandkishor expressed his objection about the show for purposely showing the Indian investigating agencies as antagonists, offending all communities of the "Sanatan Dharm" and also using his picture without his permission. Anushka has said that if this series has received so much love from the audience, then she will definitely convince her writer Sudeep Sharma to write a further story.
In his complaint against Anushka Sharma, Gurjar has sought that the web series shows Gurjar in a bad light and promotes communal disharmony. This picture is actually from a 2018 newspaper clip that originally has Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath in 2018, with Gurjar alongside.
As per the report, the MLA has said in his complaint that the show is trying to malign the image of the BJP and is also "anti-India".More news: World Rugby not interested in 2021 'Coronavirus Cup of World Rugby'
