“Something has to be done. You are polluting the minds of the young generation of this country…” a bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and C.T. Ravikumar said. The bench added that the OTT (Over the Top) content was available to all and questioned her counsel as to “what kind of choice are you providing to the people?” Also Read – Selfiee box office: Did Ekta Kapoor just go against Kangana Ranaut to support Akshay Kumar over his latest dud?

The bench said it does not appreciate that every time, a plea is moved before the apex court and added that a cost will be imposed for filing such a petition. It asked Rohatgi to convey this to his client and emphasised that the apex court works for those who don’t have voices.
The top court was hearing a plea by Kapoor against the arrest warrants issued against her for allegedly insulting soldiers and hurting the sentiments of their families in the web series on her OTT platform ALTBalaji. The bench observed, “We have seen the order and we have our reservations.”
The apex court has also kept the matter pending before it and recommended a local lawyer should be engaged to inform about the status of hearing in the high court.
A trial court in Bihar’s Begusarai had issued the warrant on a 2020 complaint lodged by Shambhu Kumar, an ex-serviceman, who alleged that XXX (season-2) featured several objectionable scenes in connection with the soldier’s wife.
