Kamathipura Is Now Streaming Under The Name 'The Tattoo Murders'; Meera Chopra Is Happy The Show Is Finally Out, Tanuj Virwani Asks 'What's In A Name?' - EXCLUSIVE
With protests rising  against  the webseries on a redlight area  being titled Kamathipura, Disney-Hotstar had stalled the series from streaming on schedule last month. The  show hit the OTT platform on 9th April  with a new  title: The  Tattoo Murderers.

Meera  Chopra who plays  one of the  key roles in the series says, “The original name of the show was Kamathipura and I loved that title. In USA nd UK we have released the show by the same name on Amazon Prime. But Hotstar didn’t want to release the  show in India with  the title  Kamathipura as local people objected to the name . This issue was even  discussed by an  MLA in Vidhan Sabha to get a stay on the show.”

Meera  who  was last seen as  an alleged rape survivor in Article  375  explains how they took the decision to change the  title. “Hotstar, and all of us  as a team, decided that we don’t want to hurt  anybody’s sentiments, and don’t want to anger  people specially in these testing times. So hence the name has been changed just for  the Indian market.”

Meera  admits  she  preferred  the earlier  title. “I preferred Kamathipura as that is more apt but then now I  am happy that the show is finally out without any legal problems for people to watch it.”

Tanuj Virwani who  plays the arch-villain disagrees with Meera. “It is already streaming on Hotstar India as The Tattoo Murders and in the  UK  and US on   Amazon Prime as Kamathipura. I feel okay about it, to be honest. After all as Shakespeare once said , what’s in a name. The content is the same and that is what matters .”
