Bhubaneswar: Twitter exploded on Sunday with hashtag #BoycottNetflix over a kissing scene in the Netflix series ‘A Suitable Boy‘.
Directed by Mira Nair, it shows actors Tanya Maniktala, playing a Hindu girl, and Danesh Razvi, playing a Muslim boy, kissing inside a temple.
Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narrotam Mishra has also reacted and asked police authorities to look into it.
BJP leader Gaurav Goel also tweeted in support of ‘Boycott Netflix’.
“If any OTT platform is deliberately insulting the Hindu Gods & Goddess, pls file the complaint with the police or local court under Section 295A of IPC. The law will take care of such offenders,” he tweeted.
Based on Vikram Seth’s 1993 novel, ‘A Suitable Boy’ shows the journey of Lata, a passionate literature student who is being coaxed to get married by her mother.
The show was released on the OTT platform on October 23.
