The National Commission for the Protection of the Rights of the Child (CNPCR) has asked Netflix to stop streaming Alankrita Shrivastava overlays Bombay Begums. Apparently, two Twitter handles condemning scenes linked to the film’s youngest protagonist (Aadhya Anand) went under the CNPCR’s scanner.
“We sought to stop the dissemination of Bombay Begums on the inappropriate portrayal of children in the series, ” CNPCR Chairman Priyank Kanoongo said. Netflix had 24 hours from the removal notification Bombay Begums from his repertoire.
While no one from Netflix was prepared to comment on this unintended development (someone has to oppose something or the other on the streaming platform), one actor on the show told me: “The ‘inappropriate portrayal of children’ is so nebulous. term. Is the Commission aware of what happens at rave parties which teenagers attend regularly? In order to begin to solve the problems that plague our society, we must first tackle these problems. And to fix these issues, we need to show them on the screen first. Law? No need to pretend they don’t exist. “
In the show’s defense, I must add that nowhere does he express approval of kids who take drugs at parties. But then the CNPCR didn’t see the ostensibly offensive scenes, did they? They act on the basis of what they read on Twitter. And we all know how reliable information on social media tends to be.
