Nawazuddin sued for abusing Rajiv Gandhi?
The character he plays in Sacred Games, a Netflix series refers Gandhi as “f**tu”
First a Delhi advocate filed a case in Delhi High Court on July 11,2018

This isn't the first time an actor has got into trouble for following the script...
Swara Bhasker was shamed for the masturbation scene in Veere Di Wedding
Shah Rukh Khan had a complaint registered against him by a Shia body for the Muharram scene in Raees
BJP demanded the deletion of GST related scenes in Mersal
In all these cases, the actors were executing a script and not presenting their own opinions
Should actors be worried about what they are asked to say/do on screen in India?
