Comedian Hasan Minhaj’s latest Netflix show is all about India’s general elections, PM Narendra Modi and UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Hasan has been garnering appreciation from all quarters for the show, as he basically talks about the core issues of Indian elections. Some Twitter users are praising the comedian for his choice of subject, while some are criticising him for being bias.
Here are some reactions on Twitter
“Meanwhile @hasanminhaj hits the ball out of the park with his latest on the Indian elections,” wrote journalist Rana Ayyub, adding, “watch it before Netflix decides to drop it.”
Comedian Kunal Kamra wrote, “@NetflixIndia as you notice great traffic on this episode, you would realize that shying away from confrontational content whether political or social is bad for business.”
Meanwhile, another Twitter user commented, “The latest Hasan Minhaj show has content outside comedy! His remarks about RSS is hurtful!”
An earlier episode of the series, in which Hasan spoke about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, was pulled off from Saudi Arabia after the prince ‘requested’ Netflix take the episode down.
“A request? Does MBS think Netflix is a wedding DJ?” Hasan reacted to the news, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “‘Yeah, quick request. You wanna take down just that one episode that’s criticizing me and then just play Usher’s Yeah. A request is when a neighbour tells you to turn the music down. A demand is when that neighbour is Conor McGregor and you’re in his parking spot.”
