Political satirist on television, Cyrus Broacha, is in trouble over his remarks on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa regarding her letter to the Prime Minister asking Manmohan Singh not to allow Sri Lankan players in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The State government has slapped a criminal defamation case against him and his team members, scriptwriter Asis Shakya and show director Kunal Vijaykar.
City Public Prosecutor M.L. Jegan filed the defamation case on behalf of Ms. Jayalalithaa. After taking the complaint on file, the court may soon issue summons to them to appear before it and face trial. The case pertains to the edition of The Week That Wasn’t hosted by Mr. Broacha and telecast on CNN-IBN channel on April 2.
