A complaint has been filed against a film by Bollywood's famous producer-director Anurag Kashyap. This complaint has come on Ghost Stories, a compilation of four different short horror films released on the OTT platform Netflix. A complaint has been filed against Ghost Stories' short film which was directed by Anurag Kashyap.
This is one of the first complaints filed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on a digital program after framing the Information Technology (Guidelines for Intermediaries and Digital Media Code of Conduct) Rules 2021 earlier this year. According to the news of English website Mid Day, objections have been raised over a scene in Anurag Kashyap's short film, in which the character of the film's actress Sobhita Dhulipala is seen eating a fetus after suffering a miscarriage.
"Such scenes are not required in the story, and if the makers want to add such scenes, there should be a trigger warning for women who have gone through the pain of miscarriage," the complaint said. According to the report, an appeal has been made in the complaint to rectify the scene within 24 hours. A Netflix India spokesperson said, "Since it was a partner-managed production [RSVP Movies and Flying Unicorn Entertainment], we have reached out to the production company to share the complaint."
Let us tell you that the Ghost Stories anthology was released on Netflix in January last year. These four short films were directed by Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Anurag Kashyap. Ghost Stories had also made a lot of headlines. It featured many actors including Sobhita Dhulipala, Mrunal Thakur, Avinash Tiwari, Janhvi Kapoor, Surekha Sikri, Raghuveer Yadav, Gulshan Devaiah, Anish Bamne, and Pavel Gulati in the lead roles.
