Bombay Begums in hassle

After Amazon Prime Video’s Tandav and Mirzapur, now Netflix’s latest release, Bombay Begum, has landed in legal trouble. As per reports, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has ordered Netlfix to stop the streaming of Bombay Begums. The NCPCR, which is the apex child rights body in India, has issued a notice to Netflix in which it cited the ‘wrongful’ depiction of children in the series. The NCPCR has asked the OTT streaming to furnish a detailed action report within 24 hours, failing to which, it will be constrained to initiate appropriate legal action. The action was taken after the NCPCR received complaints from various Twitter handles. In the notice, the Commission states “from normalization casual sex by minors, web series are now normalising the use of drugs.” The notice talks about a scene in which a minor is shown taking drugs at a party. It has also objected to a scene where minors are shown taking pictures of their ‘developed body parts’.
