TV- After widespread criticism for the usage of offensive language for Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Netflix’s Indian drama sacred Games, the video streaming site has replaced English subtitles with less offensive words.

On Thursday, the Delhi High Court said that there is no problem with criticism or even expression of dissatisfaction in the show but certain derogatory terms should be removed.

Following this, the counsel for Netflix, Chanderlal said that they have changed the English translation and replaced it with ‘wimp’.

The court has fixed August 7 as the next date of hearing to discuss other issues with the series pointed out by Shashank Garg, counsel for the petitioner.
