Bigg Boss 13 contestant Vikas Pathak, also known as Hindustani Bhau, has filed a police complaint against producer Ekta Kapoor, according to reports. In the complaint, Bhau has accused Ekta of disrespecting Indian soldiers in an episode of her ALTBalaji’s erotic web series XXX2.
After filing a complaint against Ekta and her mother Shobha Kapoor at Mumbai’s Khar police station, he went live on Instagram to explain why he did so.
He has taken objection to a scene which shows a woman indulging in a sexual act with her boyfriend, while her husband who is a soldier, is fighting at the border. In the video Bhau added that the scene also shows the woman ‘disrespecting’ and making a joke out of an Indian soldier’s uniform. He has demanded a public apology from Ekta for the scene in the series.
Following Bhau’s video, #ALTBalaji_Insults_Army started trending on Twitter, with calls for ban on the show for ‘denigrating’ Indian culture. While some demand action against the series for insulting Army officers, others are miffed with the ‘objectionable’ content of the series.
