Author Surender Mohan Pathak to sue makers of Mirzapur 2 for misrepresenting his novel Dhabba in the series

Popular Hindi fiction writer Surender Mohan Pathak has sent a notice to Amazon Prime series Mirzapur 2 makers for stating his novel ‘Dhabba’ in a filthy manner in one of the scenes. He will file a case against the makers in Delhi High Court. In the third episode of Mirzapur 2, Kulbhushan Kharbanda’s character, Satyanand Tripathi is seen reading Pathak’s novel and the voiceover described it as an erotic scene. The writer claimed that the content suggested in the voiceover is mischievously misrepresented in the series and has no relation with the original text of the novel.

The veteran writer has described the act of misinterpreting his crime novel as a violation of the Copyright Act and written to the production house Excel Entertainment, seeking the removal of the said scene. Pathak said he is waiting for the response to his notice. If he doesn’t hear from the production house within the stipulated period of one week, he will file a case against the makers of Mirzapur 2 in delhi High Court.

The writer, 80, best known for his crime fiction series says he was unaware of the scene in the series until his fans brought it to his notice. He said when the complaints started pouring in, his daughter showed him the scene. The makers added their own filthy, disgusting lines as a voiceover and passed it off as the content of his novel, which was published 10 years ago. They used cheap porn to titillate the viewers, and to tarnish his image as a well-established mystery writer. In the voiceover, a character named Baldev Raj is mentioned; there is no such character in Dhabba. Many readers, who haven’t read the novel, could get a wrong impression that the author, in his old age, has lost his mind and resorted to writing pornography to gain publicity. He considers it as a conspiracy to defame him, he added.
