 Eros Now, an OTT platform, has been facing immense criticism on social media over its distasteful Navratri posts. The post featured stills from a few Bollywood films of actors Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif. The now-deleted posts included one that said, “Be naughty, sweet toh mithai bhi hai” followed by “#Navratri”.

However, a film still, starring Katrina Kaif in a yellow saree, precisely offended Twitter, as the text read as, “Do you want to put the ‘ratri’ in my Navratri?” The platform received hate for allegedly mocking and insulting the festival of Navratri. Earlier today, netizens also called for a ban on Eros Now, making #BoycottErosNow one of the top trends on Twitter. Kangana Ranaut also took to her Twitter and slammed the OTT platform for sharing allusive posts.

In a series of tweets, the Queen actress wrote, “We must preserve cinema as a community viewing theatre experience,its more difficult to enthrall large section of audience than sexualise content for personal viewing, digitisation of art faces this major crisis, all streaming platforms are nothing but a porn hub. SHAME
@ErosNow”

“And it’s not streaming platforms fault when you wear headphones and watch content in your personal space all you need is instant gratification, it’s important to watch the movies with entire family, children, neighbors basically it must be a community experience 🙏,” wrote Kangana.

“Community viewing enhances our awareness when we know someone is watching what we watching we want to be who we want them to think we are, we make conscious choices, censorship of what we feed our brains n emotions is very important and censor can be our own conscience as well.”

However, Eros Now also issued an apology following the outrage, “We at Eros love and respect our cultures equally. It is not, and it has never been our intention to hurt anyone’s emotions. We have deleted the concerned posts and apologise for having offended anybody’s sentiments.”
