The bench asked the guard to take up the matter at the appropriate forum or file a civil suit. Advocate Neeraj Kishan Kaul, appearing for Netflix, said that the content of OTT cannot be controlled.
He also informed that only two minutes in the series are related to vigilance. Explaining in detail about the series, he said that this series is on Nirav Modi and it shows Nirav Modi working with his uncle. He said that it depicts Mehul’s interviews on various agencies which are already public.
He also said that this series has some connection with the vigilance case, which is pending. At the same time, Dayan Krishnan said that vigilance is a fugitive and he has also taken citizenship of another country.
Advocate Vijay Aggarwal, appearing for the vigil, opposed Dayan’s plea that the vigil is not a fugitive and the Bombay High Court has already stayed the process going on in his case.
Posters released by Netflix showed Choksi’s nephew and absconding diamond businessman Nirav Modi, Subrata Roy (Sahara Group), bankrupt Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya, Ramalinga Raju (former chairman and CEO of Satyam Computer Services).
