It has been a few days since the Netflix India series, Sacred Games was released. The series has created a lot of buzz on social media. While everyone is loving the outstanding performances of the star cast of the team, including Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte, the makers of the series have found themselves in some deep troubles. A new controversy has risen after a defamatory statements made about former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in one of the episodes of the series.


An FIR has been filed by the few members of Congress against the makers of the series and Netflix for insulting and abusing the former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi. Nawazuddin’s character in the series is seen referring to Rajiv Gandhi’s involvement in the Brofors scandal and while doing so, he is seen abusing Rajiv Gandhi.

This has created a lot of buzz and has divided the social media in two parts, one is supporting the makers, the others are busy in supporting the congress men.


While the High Court in Delhi is still scheduled to hear the plea on this matter, the President of Congress, Rahul Gandhi’s views on this matter are completely different. On 14th July, Rahul Gandhi took to twitter and expressed his views on this matter

Here, have a look at what he tweeted :

The tweet read:
“BJP/RSS believe the freedom of expression must be policed & controlled. I believe this freedom is a fundamental democratic right.

My father lived and died in the service of India. The views of a character on a fictional web series can never change that.”

Rahul Gandhi’s tweet has yet again divided the twitter into two parts, but the majority of it are overjoyed by the his mature reaction. It was very impressive how a mainstream Politician like Rahul Gandhi has kept aside his personal issues to focus and stand on the grounds of fundamental rights.

Overjoyed by the tweet, Anurag Kashyap has also took to twitter and has expressed his reaction with a tweet. Here, have a look at his tweet :

The tweet read:
“That’s a yay…”

Well, seems like all’s well, that ends well.
