Even though Netflix India’s original series 'Sacred Games' is getting appreciated by people across the world, the makers of the show have got into a trouble.
A Congress worker from West Bengal has filed a complaint against the actor and makers of the show for allegedly tarnishing former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's image.
The series is directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and is based on Vikram Chandra's novel of the same name. It features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saif Ali Khan, and Radhika Apte.
Congress leader Rajeev Kumar Sinha filed a complaint at the Girish Park police station and submitted copies to the police commissioner, joint commissioner of police (crime), and deputy commissioner (central division).
“Officers at the station said they will forward the complaint to the higher authorities and send me the FIR number in the next two to three days," Hindustan Times quoted him.
A member of the West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee, Sinha is the son of former Congress MLA Anay Gopal Sinha and has long association with the party’s student wing.
The 37-year-old party leader has accused Nawazuddin of using abusive words in the series for Rajiv Gandhi and misrepresenting several facts from the period.
“Besides this, the serial has crossed all limits of decency – taking the Indian film industry to a whole new low,” he added.
The complaint urged the officer-in-charge to treat it as a formal complaint and lodge an FIR against the names mentioned under relevant sections of the IPC and IT Act.
