Complaint registered against Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Ghost Stories’

Anurag Kashyap directed ‘Ghost Stories’, which was a part of an anthology of four movies released on Netflix last year, is facing a complaint for its content. And this grievance is one of the first to fall under the Information Technology (Guidelines for Intermediaries and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021 that was framed in February this year by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

According to this rule, streaming platforms are mandated to have a redressal mechanism to address viewers’ grievances and following the same, a complaint has been received by Netflix India, which takes objection against a particular scene in Anurag Kashyap’s short film. According to a news portal, the complainant has expressed that a scene where Sobhita Dhulipala is seen devouring the foetus from her miscarriage is not required for the story and that if the makers wish to keep it, then there should be a trigger warning for women who have gone through the trauma of miscarriages. The matter is pending with Netflix’s Grievance Redressal Officer.

‘Ghost Stories’, is an anthology of four short films directed by Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, Anurag Kashayp and Karan Johar. It was released on New Year’s day in 2020 and was a sequel of sorts to the filmmakers’ 2018 anthology ‘Lust Stories’.
