Hyderabad court stays release of Netflix series over Ramalinga Raju’s objections

A local Civil Court in Hyderabad restrained Netflix from releasing web series “Bad Boy Billionaires: India” on the life story of Satyam Computer Services founder B. Ramalinga Raju who was convicted in Satyam Scam and three others.


A court passed the stay order on a petition filed by Raju, who was released on bail in 2018. He sought orders to restrain Netflix from releasing the web series on the ground that it would invade his privacy in an unlawful manner.


Raju also claimed that the narrative contained half-truths and was palpably designed to bring down his reputation.


Netflix has already released the trailer of the web series which is about Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi, Subrata Roy and Ramalinga Raju.


Meanwhile, the Supreme Court Wednesday refused to entertain a plea filed by Netflix against a court in Bihar that had restrained Netflix from using Subrata Roy's name in the web series.
