New Delhi – Apparently, the authorities of various media houses, directors and producers of films, web series are determined to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. A scene in web series ‘A Suitable Boy’ depicts a Muslim man kissing Hindu girl in temple premises, while another film ‘Ludo’ that is released on Netflix denigrated Hindu Deities by portraying them in the guise of mimickers.
NETFLIX & OTT platforms, are #AntiHindu
Netflix is popular for its propaganda contents that violates our cultural norms & are based on hate & scripted visuals that offends Hindu sentiments.
Strict action should be taken. #bannetflixinindia #BanNetflix@HarishK04131926 @kk_jpr pic.twitter.com/L3g9Zh5LOT

- Film Ludo, directed by Anurag Basu, denigrates Hindu Deities in a similar way which Aamir Khan’s PK did a few years ago.
- One of the scenes in the film depicts three characters dancing and jumping on the streets in the guise of Deity Brahma, Shri Vishnu and Deity Shankar, at which the film’s hero Aditya Roy Kapoor looks in a demeaning way.
- Another scene depicts two characters dressed as Deity Shiv and Goddess Mahakali pushing a vehicle.
- One scene shows the actor and actress in bed and when her mother calls and enquires about location, she tells that she is in a temple.
- There are comical references to Ramleela and cow in the film.
- Another scene depicts director Anurag Basu and actor Rahul Bagga playing the game of ludo, when Basu tells Rahul, ‘Do you think that all who died of coronavirus were sinful people ?’ While referring to virtue and sin, Basu says, “After the battle of Mahabharat, when Pandavs enter heaven, they find Duryodhan already present there. Duryodhan was sinful according to the world”.
Duryodhana was sinful according to the world’. The Kauravs are portrayed as heroes while the Pandavs as villains in the film, for which Anurag Basu is shown telling a false story based on his own interpretations.
