The Supreme Court has rapped filmmaker, Ekta Kapoor after she requested the court for protection from arrest warrants against her over her Alt Balaji web series ‘XXX’.
The Supreme Court warned Kapoor not to come to them with any more pleas, and ordered that a cost will be levied if she files more such petitions.
The Supreme Court bench said, “Something has to be done. You are polluting the minds of the young generation of this country. It is available to all. OTT (Over The Top) content is available to all. What kind of choice are you providing to the people?….on the contrary you are polluting the minds of youngsters.”
The court stopped short of imposing costs but warned Ekta, “Every time you travel to this court….we don’t appreciate this. We will put a cost on you for filing such a petition. Mr Rohatgi please convey this to your client. Just because you can afford and hire the services of good lawyers….this court is not for those who have voices. This court works for those who don’t have voices…if these people who have all kinds of facilities, if they cannot get justice then think of the situation of this common man. We have seen the order and we have our reservations.”
