VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi joined the chorus by demanding a ban on the film, stating, “Won’t tolerate the disrespect of Sanatan Dharma. Ban Maharaj Film. #BoycottNetflix,” on X.

Several individuals raised concerns about religion being portrayed in films.  one user questioning the introduction of religion in a movie based on food a few months ago.  now criticizing the portrayal of Hindu saints in ‘Maharaj’.

Another user highlighted the poster of Maharaj depicting a man with religious symbols on one side and a modern-looking young man (Aamir Khan’s son Junaid) on the other, linking it to what they see as a pattern of anti-Hindu themes in Netflix series and movies.

The official description reveals that the film is set in pre-independent India and revolves around the Maharaj Libel Case of 1862 concerning allegations against a prominent figure.

Junaid Khan will play Karsandas Mulji, an advocate for women’s rights and social reform during his time at Elphinstone College in Mumbai under mentor Dadabhai Naoroji’s guidance.
