A legal notice was served on Sunday to halt the promotion, broadcast and screening of Pori Moni-starrer web film ‘Puff Daddy’ within three days for undermining religious sentiments and existing laws, and spreading obscenity among youths.
On Sunday, Bangladesh Supreme Court and Cumilla Judge Court lawyer Zainal Abedin Mazhari sent the notice to chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Company Limited, managing director of OTT platform Bongobd, chairman of Bangladesh Film Censor Board, secretary of information and broadcasting ministry and vice chairman of Bangladesh Film Censor Board.
Zainal Abedin Mazhari wrote in the legal notice that vested interest groups were using OTT platforms to make easy money and spread obscenity among the younger generation of the country as there were no specific policies regarding OTT platforms.
Puff Daddy, a bongo original web film, was released on Bongobd on September 7.
The web film has been co-directed by ShahidUnNabi and Mushfiqur Rahman Manzu.
It stars Azad AbulKalam, Pori Moni, Sajal, Shahiduzzaman Selim, Intekhab Dinar, Faruk Ahmed and others.
