The FIR filed against the producers, directors, and writers of the famous criminal web series Mirzapur has been overturned by the Allahabad High Court.
In a significant milestone, the Allahabad High Court has overturned the FIR filed against the creators of the famous online series Mirzapur.
Mirzapur, the popular Amazon Prime Video original series, dominated the Indian OTT arena in 2018 and continues to do so with its second installment.
However, the series’ creators found themselves in hot water for allegedly hurting sensibilities by portraying Uttar Pradesh in an ‘indecent’ manner.
FIR filed against Mirzapur series
The Allahabad High Court overturned the FIR filed against the makers of the online series Mirzapur for allegedly hurting religious, social, and regional emotions via their representation of the state and the district, Mirzapur.
The FIR was registered against Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, as well as the show’s writers and directors, Karan Anshuman, Gurmeet Singh, Puneet Krishna, and Vineet Krishna.
The judgment was taken after the Allahabad High Court determined that there were no accusations in the FIR that could be used to prosecute someone.
“Moreover, that there’s no unsubstantiated claim that the petitioners meant to generate feelings of enmity, hatefulness, or ill-will between distinct religious, racial, language, or regional groups, castes, or communities on the basis of religion, caste, or community, or any other ground whatsoever,” the court stated.
On January 17, an FIR was lodged for allegedly portraying the Mirzapur district of Uttar Pradesh in an ‘indecent and immoral manner.’
