Sacred Games 2: BJP leader files a complaint against director Anurag Kashyap
Recently released second season of the 'Sacred Games' is being reviewed as a below-par edition. But through the hype it secured from an extraordinary first season, it is being trended. As a part of its never-ending controversies, there comes another one which is a bit serious this time.
BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has filed a complaint against director Anurag Kashyap, has filed a police complaint against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap over controversial ‘kada’ scene in the second season of Netflix’s Sacred Games.
He accused him of "insulting feelings of the people belonging to the Sikh community" in 'Sacred Games 2'. Bagga said that Kashyap "deliberately" depicted a scene in which a Sikh character throws away his Kada. "Kada is considered as a revered...part of Sikh religion," he added.
The scene in question involves actor Saif Ali Khan’s character, police inspector Sartaj Singh, removing his ‘kada’ and throwing it into the sea. Actually, Kashyap didn’t direct the scenes starring Saif; he was, instead, at the helm of the Nawazuddin Siddiqui timeline in the show. Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan directed the Sartaj timeline.
Last year, Netflix was embroiled in legal proceedings over a scene in which certain controversial statements were made against former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
