After dozens of other controversies, Netflix has landed into yet another controversy along with Pulse Films. Netflix and Pulse Films have received legal notice over copyright breach on their documentary titled Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator’.
The documentary is based on the controversial life of hot yoga founder, Bikram Choudhary, who has been accused of sexual assaults and discrimination against racial and sexual minorities.
As per a report in Deadline, Ghosh’s Yoga College, a yoga school in Kolkata, India has claimed that the pictures used in the documentary were taken from Ghosh pamphlet Yoga Cure and book Calcutta Yoga without permission. The college has demanded the images to be removed from the documentary along with an official apology.
The legal letter reads, “the only individuals in the world who have been granted permission by GYC to use images from the Yoga Cure pamphlet.”
“It is disturbing that the material from Yoga Cure and Calcutta Yoga is being used in the Bikram Film without permission, or acknowledgement of its source,” the letter said.
