Breaking News: Disney+ Hotstar Postpones Kamathipura That Contains Violent Sequences; Here's Why - EXCLUSIVE
Actor Tanuj Virwani who  plays the menacing antagonist in the Disney+ Hotstar’s new webseries Kamathipura  woke up on Sunday morning  to the  shocking news that its release  was postponed from March 8  to an indefinite  date.

Apparently the decision comes in the wake of the recent  guidelines  for  the digital platform from the  Ministry  of Information  & Broadcasting. The hard-hitting series contains a profusion  of  unparliamentary  language  and  scenes of  prolonged violence .

The  flash-decision to do an  Operation Cleanup was taken by Disney-Hotstar’s top-ranking  officials  to avoid controversy, moral policing and litigation.

Says  Tanuj, “I am  quite shocked , to be honest.But the series’ makers tell me it’s because of  the  new OTT guidelines that need to be followed . Will take a few more days before streaming.”

Does  Tanuj think  the  new  I &B guidelines are an obstruction to an unhampered  flow on the  streaming  platform?   “I think as long as they are logical and fair , they won’t hamper the content coming out too much . Certain platforms and shows have pushed it and abused the self-censorship they were meant to carry out , and now as a result the rest of us are simply suffering a collateral damage.”
