The recent web series Godman,which stirred up a controversy, has been suspended by the OTT platform ZEE5. An announcement to this effect was made through the official Twitter handle of the streaming platform.

It may be noted that BJP spokesperson Narayanan Thirupathy had filed a complaint against the series, earlier today, alleging that the trailer is degrading the Brahmin community. Following that, a summon was issued asking the director Babu Yogeswaran and producer to appear before police.

The series, starring Daniel Balaji, Jayaprakash and Soniya Agarwal, was planned to be released on the OTT platform Zee5 this month. Godman reportedly traces the transformation of a gangster into a 'spiritual leader', with the guidance of a guru who believes priesthood is not restricted to a particular caste or community.
