‘Godman’ was scheduled to release on the 12th of June 2020. It is one of the upcoming web shows in Tamil. Unfortunately, the content of the show got a backlash from Hindi and Brahmin communities. The trailer that released last week too garnered criticism. On this regard, Zee5 suspended the release of the show.
"ZEE5 is a responsible content creator and a leading player in the digital °co-system. The platform has been following stringent guidelines when it comes to self - regulating content and has proactively instilled a robust set of features in this regard. Purely in the Interest of Its viewers, ZEE5 was also one of the first Industry players to have signed the Code for Self-Regulation of Online Curated Content Providers. Basing the feedback that we have received with reference to our latest Tamil language fiction show - GODMAN, we have decided to suspend the release of this show at this moment. The producers, show and ZEES had no Intent whatsoever of offending or hurting any religious beliefs, community, personal beliefs or sentiments. ZEES offers over 100+ original shows across languages, showcasing the finer aspects of the society, in order to keep its viewers well-informed and entertained." read an official statement from Zee5.
