Apparently Anushka Sharma,Paatal Lok’s Co-Producer is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Viren Sri Gurung, a member of the Lawyers Guild associated to the Chambers of Mr. Pranay Rai & Associates have sent a legal notice to Anushka Sharma on Monday i.e May 18 for a casteist slur that has been used in one of the scenes.
Gurung said “There is a clip wherein during an interrogation a lady police officer uses a casteist slur on a Nepali character. There wouldn’t have been any problem had only ‘Nepali’ been used. But the word that follows it is unacceptable. Since Anushka Sharma is one of the producers of the show, we have served her a notice”.
Anushka Sharma hasn’t responded yet to this legal notice and if she fails to response within the given time then Gurung and his legal team will take the matter forward with the OTT platform streaming it, Amazon Prime Video, and others involved in the series.
