Despite a brilliant concept and amazing performances from the entire cast, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma’s production venture ‘Paatal Lok’ is in the news these days for all bad reasons!
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Nandkishor Gurjar has filed an FIR against Anushka for using his picture in Paatal Lok without his ‘consent’. The BJP MLA from Loni of Ghaziabad has also requested the Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javedekar to impose a complete ban on the web series.
This was not it for the BJP MLA as he even adviced Virat Kohli to divorce Anushka for she being anti-national. He said, “Virat Kohli desh bhakt hai, desh k liye khele hai. Anushka ko talak de dena chahiye (Virat Kohli is a patriot, he has represented India. He should divorce Anushka).”
Not only the BJP leader but a member of the Lawyers Guild, Viren Sri Gurung had also sent a legal notice to Anushka for allegedly using a casteist slur in her show.
Inspite of these controversies, Paatal Lok is liked by millions of people and no wonder if we can see a second season of the web series. Paatal Lok features Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi, Abhishek Bannerjee, Gul Panag, Swastika Mukherjee in important roles.
