Bombay Begums Controversy: Netizens Extend Their Support To NCPCR

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has objected to Netflix’s Bombay Begums. It has further asked Netflix to stop streaming the Pooja Bhatt starrer web series. The child rights body said that the contents of the show may result in the abuse and exploitation of children. NCPCR also issued a notice to the online streaming platform and asked for a detailed report within 24-hours on the action taken by it, failing which it would initiate ‘appropriate legal action against Netflix.

The child’s right body has also taken note of a complaint by Twitter handle @GemsOfBollywood, which reported that the series shows minors indulging in drug abuse. Sharing screenshots from show, the complainant wrote, “From normalisation of minors indulging in casual sex we now have web series showing minors having cocaine. Screengrab from Bombay Begums where a 13yr old is snorting coke as the party she goes to is all about alcohol, drugs.”
