Dazzling actress Anushka Sharma and Amazon Prime Videos on Monday got a notice from the Haryana and Punjab High Court on a petition saying the web series ‘Paatal Lok’ had defamed the Sikh community. Paatal Lok is an acclaimed web series produced by Anushka Sharma for Amazon Prime.
The notice of motion was issued to the Union of India and 15 other respondents by the bench of Justice Arun Kumar Tyagi. The petitioner has objections to episode number three on ‘A History of Violence’ that was set in a village in Punjab.
“The respondents have purposely and maliciously within the intent of creating communal disharmony and caste-based clashes have shown two communities in a bad light,” said petitioner-advocate Gurdeepinder Singh Dhillon.
We have to wait and see how Anushka will respond to these allegations and if law will take any action against her.
