Bombay Begums Stares At Legal Trouble? NCPCR, Child Protection Organisation Seeks FIR Against Team - EXCLUSIVE
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has sought the intervention  of  Maharashtra’s Home Secretary to register an FIR against the makers  of  the Netflix series Bombay Begums.

The  NCPCR claims  the series “normalizes minors indulging in casual sex and drug abuse”(a claim that even a cursory viewing  of the series discredits) .

One actor from the series  who spoke  on condition of anonymity says, “We have a standing  gag order. No one from the cast or  crew  is allowed to speak about this.  But I don’t see  how  the series normalizes  casual sex and drug abuse. The youngest protagonist  is  at that age when she  is curious  about various experiences. Her journey is   the journey  of  many teenagers  in  the  cities. To show the  dark side  of  a lifestyle  doesn’t mean we are normalizing  or legitimizing  it.”


With the NCPCR  breathing down  the Maharashtra government’s neck the series’  makers may have to edit out some scenes featuring the  14-year old actress Aadhya Anand.

Luckily for  the team  this is  not a religious or a political   but a moral issue.
