Hello.

We’re doing something a little different today. Like you, we’re tired of the inequality, discrimination, trolling, sexism, and violence we see in the news and social media every day.

We at MissMalini are looking inwards to discover how we can drive real social change. We acknowledge that change starts at home, and that it is up to us to be the change we wish to see in the country we love.

We pledge to do our part by creating a more inclusive environment in which all are accepted - regardless of race, age, gender, religion, caste or sexual orientation.

Starting today we pledge:

A Case Has Been Filed Against Nawazuddin Siddiqui For Abusing Rajeev Gandhi In Sacred Games

Pallavi Manoj

You know when a random person goes and files a case against an actor for a line his fictional character has said in a film. You know, like how someone filed a case against Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma for ‘demeaning’ sex workers in Sanju? Turns out, it’s happened again. But this time with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for his popular TV show Sacred Games.

It’s hardly been a week since India’s first ever original Netflix series, Sacred Games released and it’s already hitting controversies. The show has an ample amount of violence, nudity, foul language- basically the recipe to make any good offense taker’s head turn. But, a complaint has been filed against Nawazuddin and the producers of the show for insulting the former Congress Prime Minister, Rajeev Gandhi.

Rajiv Sinha, a Congress member in West Bengal, wrote a letter to Kolkata Police on the matter. He accused the makers of abusing the late Prime Minister by calling him fattu, which was translated to pussy in the subtitle. He also said that the makers of the series had misrepresented facts during Rajeev Gandhi’s tenure.

Well… we guess it’s just another day for a B-Town star to get slapped with an FIR, no?
