Abuse of elephant[edit]

The makers of the show have been facing opposition from Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) and animal rights organization, PETA India for abusing baby elephant, Suman, who is a central character in the show. According to media reports, AWBI and PETA conducted an inspection and found out that elephant, Suman, was treated poorly on the sets. Suman had developed skin infection and exhibited abnormal behaviour. Handlers also reportedly threatened her with sticks in front of the inspectors and she was not provided with adequate access to drinking water, appropriate housing or necessary veterinary care. Suman, the baby elephant, is three years old and separating her from her mother has been called 'unethical' by PETA.[3]

According to a news published in Times of India, AWBI has canceled the permission to use the animal after which makers of the show went to Bombay High Court. The case is under sub-judice.[3]

PETA India has urged High Court to rehabilitate Suman to a sanctuary.[4]
