Bihar court issues arrest warrant against Ekta Kapoor and mother

Published: 29th September 2022

The Begusarai court in Bihar issued arrest warrant against producer-filmmaker Ekta Kapoor and her mother Shobha Kapoor, on Wednesday, on the grounds of insulting soldiers and hurting the sentiments of their family members, through their web series XXX Season 2.

The warrant was issued after a complaint was filed by ex-serviceman and Begusarai resident  Shambhu Kumar in 2020. He had claimed that the series contained scenes that had questionable scenes related to a soldier’s wife.

“The series was aired on ALTBalaji, an OTT platform owned by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms Ltd. Shobha Kapoor is also associated with Balaji Telefilms,” said Kumar’s advocate Hrishikesh Pathak.

“The court had issued summons to them (Kapoors) and asked them to appear before it in connection with the matter. They (Kapoors), however, informed the court that certain scenes in the series were removed after the objection. But they did not appear before the court following which the warrant was issued against them,” Pathak added.
