Offended By Vulgarity CA’s Demand ban of Netflix Show CA Topper

Netflix’s upcoming web series Tribhuvan Mishra: CA Topper has prompted a wave of controversy on social media, with many netizens condemning both the creators and the streaming platform for representing Chartered Accountants (CAs) negatively. The show, which tells the narrative of an accountant who gets sucked into a misadventure involving weapons and sweet-toothed gangsters posing as halwaais, has been accused of mocking CAs.

The show’s trailer, released on Tuesday (July 9), introduces the characters without revealing anything about their backgrounds. It depicts lead actor Manav Kaul’s character, a CA, leading a regular and uninteresting life. To repay his debts, he becomes a gigolo. The audience is intrigued by the drama that will develop in the wild crime comedy-drama, which also stars Tillotama Shome.

While some social media users praised the trailer, others criticized the creators for the show’s content.

A user wrote, “I strongly criticise the upcoming Webseries on @NetflixIndia, request @NetflixIndia to remove it from your platform immediately #boycott_CA_Topper, I urge everyone to report this issue.”

Another user wrote, “First when I saw that Netflix is coming with series on CA I was happy but as soon as I saw the trailer I was like What the hell is this… Our profession is most underrated and now also this series will disrespect our noble profession.”

One person posted, “Hey @NetflixIndia Kindly don’t release it. It’s completely embarrassment for the Noble profession to portray something like this. @theicai pls look into it.”

Another person wrote, “As a Chartered Accountant, I am deeply offended by the vulgarity in the trailer for your upcoming release. This portrayal undermines the dignity of our profession. I urge you to reconsider releasing this @theicai request you to take immediate action to address this disrespect.”

One more person wrote, “Utterly shameful to use Tag CA which signifies Chartered Accountant as a shameful tag in your series’s / movie! We condemn this and also will move courts against misuse of A prestigious tag & Degree Initial CA! @theicai @NetflixIndia @FinMinIndia #BanCATopper #CA”

One CA commented, “Disrespectful & unacceptable. Urgent need of censor boards for OTTs. These ppl think they can screen any damn thing & no one will object. What is the say of the auditors of the production/distribution team? @theicai urgent need to give befitting reply & address this defamation.”

Other tweets are as follows:

The show’s makers and producers have not yet responded to netizens requesting a ban on the show.

Amrit Raj Gupta and Puneet Krishna direct the show, which stars Shweta Basu Prasad, Shubhrajyoti Barat, Faisal Malik, Jitin Gulati, and others. CA Topper is planned for release on July 18.
