The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has sought the intervention of Maharashtra’s Home Secretary Manu Kumar Shrivastva to lodge a lawsuit against the makers of the Netflix series ‘Bombay Begums’.

The NCPCR alleges the series “normalizes minors indulging in casual sex and drug abuse”. The NCPCR’s claim has put Netflix on immense trepidation as it already been in constant pressure for similar issues. Meanwhile, the show makers ordered the cast and crew to not speak anything about the issue.

One actor from the series under the condition of staying anonymous asserted, “We have a standing gag order. No one from the cast or crew is allowed to speak about this. But I don’t see how the series normalizes casual sex and drug abuse. The youngest protagonist is at that age when she is curious about various experiences. Her journey is the journey of many teenagers in the cities. To show the dark side of a lifestyle doesn’t mean we are normalizing or legitimizing it.”

In another letter to Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale, NCPCR insisted him to appear before the commission via videoconferencing on May 28 along with the requisite compliance or action taken in the matter. His reply is anticipated today before making further move by court.

Makers could trim few scenes featuring the 14-year old actress Aadhya Anand.
