    The controversial docu-series named “Bad boy Billionaires,”covers the alleged fraud committed by the infamous business tycoons like Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Sahara India chief Subrata Roy.

    Netflix has released its controversial docu-series titled “Bad Boy Billionaires: India,” which covers alleged financial frauds committed by infamous business tycoons like Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Sahara India Chief Subrata Roy.
    The OTT platform released all episodes except the one involving B Ramalinga Raju, founder of Satyam Computer Services.
    The release could only happen after a court in Bihar’s Araria district on Saturday vacated its own stay order on the release of the series.  The web series was earlier scheduled for release on September 2.
    However, after Mehul Choksi whose name is mentioned in the series, Roy and Raju approached courts seeking a stay on the docu-series stating that it would affect their ongoing trials. The court had earlier restrained Netflix from using Sahara Chairman Subrata Roy's name in the upcoming series. Roy claimed that the series was an attempt to tarnish his image.
    Since, Ramalinga Raju’s case is still pending in a Hyderabad court, the episode on him has not been aired.
    Fearing damage to his reputation, Choksi had approached the Delhi High Court through advocate Vijay Aggarwal. Ruling out Choksi’s plea the Delhi High Court asked the Centre to regulate digital content.
    The online streaming service defended the allegations claiming the Indian government does not regulate content on OTT platforms and mentioned about the laws of freedom of speech and expression, arguing that a documentary, referring to facts and widely discussed in the public domain aren’t sub-judice.
    The Centre refused to further intervene in the matter.
