'Itne Jobless Kyun Ho Bhai', Internet Reacts To Madhuri Dixit Comment - The Big Bang Theory Row
Most of us are now aware of The Big Bang Theory's controversy and one of its lines involving Madhuri Dixit.
While some internet users applaud the fact that it was brought to their attention by an "awake citizen," others have noted how this has only come to light 15 years after the show first aired.
For the uninitiated, streaming service Netflix has received a legal notice from political analyst Mithun Vijay Kumar regarding an episode of The Big Bang Theory that he claims contains a "derogatory phrase" for actor Madhuri Dixit.
Check out how fans responded:

Firstly, why are ya'll only watching Season 2 now?
Secondly, Sheldon is correct in saying that Aishwarya is a poor man's Madhuri.
And finally, I don't care about Raj's statement because haters gonna hate ?

As a fan of Madhuri Dixit (her being my favourite indian actress) i found the comments on the show to be purely in jest seeing as it is a comedy show, having watched it many times all 12 seasons, being a Pakistani there was a line against Pakistan too which i also found funny— Sonnn Fonnn (@imshozob) March 28, 2023
This is absolutely ridiculous, you need to grow up man. Take down this post, before the whole world laughs at us.— monsam (@monsam) March 27, 2023
But Sheldon knows everything and he endorses MD over Ash and that was the whole joke. It was technically praise— Neelu (@neelu06) March 25, 2023

Why now, so that people notice you?
#TheBigBangTheory ended about 4 years back and the said comment on #MadhuriDixit featured even earlier. How come there was no outrage back then and now all of a sudden people are sending notices to Netflix, calling Kunal Nayyar names, and so on. ?— Aditya Kulkarni (@adikulk) March 28, 2023

Mithun Vijay Kuma’s statement
“It is important to hold companies like Netflix accountable for their actions and to ensure that they are sensitive to the cultural values and sentiments of the communities they serve. I strongly believe that streaming service providers have a responsibility to carefully curate the content that they offer on their platforms. It is their duty to ensure that the material they present does not include derogatory, offensive, or defamatory content. I was deeply troubled by the use of a derogatory term in one of the shows on Netflix - Big Bang Theory. This term was used in reference to the acclaimed actress Madhuri Dixit, and it was not only offensive and deeply hurtful but also showed a lack of regard for her dignity."
Jim Parsons, who portrays Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, and Nayyar are both present in the controversial episode. Parsons refers to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as "a poor man's Madhuri Dixit" while comparing her to Madhuri Dixit. “Aishwarya Rai is a goddess, by comparison, Madhuri Dixit is a leprous prostitute.” answers Nayyar's Raj Koothrappali.
