“It has extremely objectionable scenes that have hurt the feelings of a particular religion,” Narottam Mishra, the interior minister said on Twitter.

“I’ve directed police officers to get this controversial content tested” to determine “what legal action can be taken against the producer-director of the film for hurting religious sentiments”.

Adding more to it, a month after ‘A Suitable Boy’s release, BJP leader Gaurav Tiwari has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against the video-streaming platform for the show.

Directed by celebrated Indian filmmaker Mira Nair, A Suitable Boy series is based on an English novel by one of India’s leading writers Vikram Seth.

The story follows a young girl’s search to find a suitable husband. The lead cast includes Tabu, Ram Kapoor Ishaan Khattar, Tanyamaniktala, Namit Das, Vijay Varma, Rasika Dugal, Ranvir Shorey, Vinay Pathak, and others.
