Popular show The Big Bang Theory faces legal trouble for using inappropriate term against veteran Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit. In one of episodes of show Jim Parson’s character calls Aishwarya Rai ‘poor man’s Madhuri Dixit’ to which Kunal Nayyar’s character responds: “Aishwarya Rai is goddess, by comparison, Madhuri Dixit is leprous prostitute.”

Therefore, using such derogatory term for legendary actress has pushed show into legal trouble. OTT giant Netflix has received legal notice by political analyst Mithun Vijay Kumar demanding to remove show claiming that it promotes misogyny.

Statement he issued, read as reported by HindustanTimes reported, “It is important to hold companies like Netflix accountable for their actions and to ensure that they are sensitive to cultural values and sentiments of communities they serve.”

I hope that this incident will serve as wake-up call to all streaming services providers to work towards creating more equitable and respectful media landscape,” statement said. Big Bang Theory aired in September 2007 till 2019 May.–Agencies
