MP home minister Narottam Mishra on Sunday said that he has instructed state officials to initiate action against web series ‘Suitable Boy’ for showing a kissing scene in a temple.

The web series, based on a novel of Vikram Seth, published in 1993, was recently released on an OTT platform.

Mishra said the kissing scene was filmed in a temple where people are singing Bhajans in the background. “There are so many such scenes in the series which hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. I have taken objection to the scene and have asked officers to inquire into the matter and examine the scenes to know the purpose behind filming such obscene scenes in the temple premises. Action will be taken against the producer and director of these scenes,” the home minister said.
