Ekta Kapoor, a well-known Bollywood producer, and her mother appear to be in trouble. Regarding allegations that she insulted soldiers in Season 2 of her web series “XXX,” a court in Bihar has issued arrest warrants for the producer and her mother, Shobha Kapoor. The two have been charged with offending the feelings of the military families.
After Ekta and Shobha Kapoor disregarded a prior summons issued by the court, an arrest warrant was issued. A complaint by ex-serviceman Shambhu Kumar, a citizen of Begusarai, Bihar, is the basis for the legal dispute.
“On the basis of a complaint made by Begusarai resident and ex-serviceman Shambhu Kumar, the court had summoned them and asked them to appear before it. But a warrant was issued against them because they failed to show up in court, according to Advocate Hrishi.
This is not the first case against Ekta, numerous cases were filed against her related to the same web series. Earlier this month, an FIR was filed against the producer in Indore for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Army personnel and inappropriate use of the national emblem in the series. The complaint was lodged at Annapurna Police Station in 2020 under numerous sections of the Indian Penal Code and the IT Act.
The complainant Neeraj Yagnik said that he filed the complaint following the objectionable use of the national emblem in the series. A similar complaint was also filed against the producer and her mother in Mirzapur court in Bihar allegedly insulting army personnel and their family members in the series that is streamed on Alt Balaji, a subsidiary owned by Balaji Telefilms. Ekta’s mother Shobha is the managing director of Balaji Telefilms Limited based in Mumbai.
