Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor is facing an arrest warrant over her controversial series ‘XXX – Season 2’.

Kapoor and her mother, Shobha Kapoor have landed in hot water for insulting soldiers and hurting the sentiments of their family members in her web series ‘XXX’ (Season-2). The complaint was lodged by Shambhu Kumar, an ex-serviceman and a resident of Begusarai.

“The series was aired on ALTBalaji, an OTT platform owned by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms Ltd. Shobha Kapoor is also associated with Balaji Telefilms,” said Hrishikesh Pathak, the advocate of Shambhu Kumar.

“The court had issued summons to them (Kapoors) and asked them to appear before it in connection with the matter. They (Kapoors), however, informed the court that certain scenes in the series were removed after the objection. But they did not appear before the court following which the warrant was issued against them,” Mr Pathak added.
