Actress receive threats for a TV show in Assam

On 10th July 2020, an actress named Mrs. Preety Kkongana went to the police station in Dispur, Assam to file an FIR against Bikram Nath and Kishor Das. They had been threatening her with rape, murder, and acid-attack over a controversial tv-series named Begum Jaan where Mrs. Kkongana is a protagonist. Many organizations allege that the series promotes "love jihad" but the producing company denied such claims and affirmed that this series doesn't hurt any Hindu sentiments whatsoever. Currently, this case is being investigated. “Two persons, namely Bikram Nath and Kishor Das, have been threatening me and harassing me mentally for a long time. Bikram Nath has even threatened me with rape, acid attack, and murder. Kishor has used abusive words against me on social media and spoke of rape and murder. This is extremely disturbing for me, and I’m worried for myself and my family. They have also called me a prostitute,” told Kongana to the Outlook.
