The Pataal Lok makers are said to have morphed the face of a corrupt character named Balkishan Bajpayee on Yogi’s picture. The synopsis of the said scene was a scam by the Uttar Pradesh government in a highways project.

While the filmmakers morphed the pictures of Yogi Adityanath and General V K Singh, it retained the image of BJP MLA Gurjar who has accused Anushka Sharma of misrepresenting his character in the web series.

It was earlier reported that a Gorkha community group had filed a complaint against Sharma with National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for allegedly using ‘insulting, demeaning and derogatory’ language for a Nepali-speaking woman in the second episode.
