In the fourth episode titled Brahmahatya, Nawaz has a dialogue which goes as,“Woh pradhaanmatri Rajiv Gandhi, woh fattu bola, chup baith aurat (sic).” The subtitle for 'fattu' was originally given as 'pussy' which is what offended Kolkata-based Congress party member Rajeev Kumar Sinha. He filed a police complaint against Nawaz and Netflix for abusing and insulting the late ex-Prime Minister.

Sinha goes on to say in his complaint that the series 'crosses all limits of decency and has taken the film industry to a new low'.
After the complaint, the word 'pussy' was replaced by 'wimp'. The Delhi High Court will be hearing a plea on the matter tomorrow.
But will this calm Sinha? Or, is there a storm brewing? Let's wait and watch.
