MP Government Orders Probe in Temple Kissing Scenes filmed for the Netflix Series- A Suitable Boy

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottan Mishra on Sunday (22nd November, 2020) said that the state police have been asked to examine the series “A Suitable Boy” being streamed on Netflix to check if kissing scenes in it were filmed in a temple and if it hurt religious sentiments. 

An office-bearer of Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the ruling BJP, has claimed the kissing scenes were filmed in a temple in MP’S Maheshwar town and submitted a complaint to the Rewa Superintendent of Police. 

Mishra said in a video statement that, “The series “A Suitable Boy” was released on an OTT media platform. Kissing scenes were filmed inside a temple with bhajans being sung in the background. I consider it objectionable. I think this hurt feelings”. 

The minister hinted at taking legal action against the makers of the series. 

The minister further added, “I have directed police to examine the series and determine what action can be taken against the producer and director of this series”. 

Meanwhile, Gaurav Tiwari, BJYM national secretary claimed, “Parts of the series were filed in Maheshwar town in Madhya Pradesh. The kissing scene inside the temple has hurt our sentiments.

Rewa SP said while talking to the reporters, that further action will be taken after footage of the objectionable scenes will receive from Netflix.
