The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has received a complaint against Amazon Prime's latest web series 'Pataal Lok' bankrolled by Bollywood actress and producer Anushka Sharma.
Members from Gorkha community have accused that few scenes in Pataal Lok are insulting Gorkhas. The All Arunachal Pradesh Gorkha Youth Association has on Saturday lodged an online complaint with NHRC. Also, Gorkha Parisangh staged an online protest against the trending web series.
In their official complaint to NHRC, the members of Youth association said that a scene in second episode of Paatak Lok has presented their community in a degraded manner. Besides demanding to mute the words in that scene and corresponding subtitles with a disclaimer, All Arunachal Pradesh Gorkha Youth Association also asked NHRC to take legal action against producer Anushka Sharma.
Anushka, who earned a good fame as an actress in Bollywood, has launched her own production house called 'Clean Slate Films'. Till now, she has produced NH19, Phillauri and Pari. 'Pataal Lok' is her first web series as a producer.
