The Hyderabad cyber crime police have dismissed a complaint filed by a social activist against AltBalaji web show XXX Uncensored 2. The complaint was filed in Hyderabad stating that one of the shows on the digital platform aired derogatory content.
The digital platform has reported that the case lacked corroboration. A source close to the industry said, “A Hyderabad based complainant raised an objection against an Alt Balaji show and wanted to raise an FIR. But when the police undertook an investigation, the FIR filing was dismissed because there wasn’t anything objectionable that was found.”
The source further revealed, “A police department already investigated the case, went to the respective platform, saw the show and found nothing offensive.”
According to sources, the platform had on its own volition, also made the necessary amendments because they did not want to hurt anyone’s sentiments. A source close to the industry shared, “ALTBalaji had instantly blurred and edited certain questionable scenes from the show to be extra cautious.”
