The trailer of SonyLIV and Maddock Outsider’s upcoming web show ‘Chutzpah’ is being hugely appreciated by the viewers for its unique concept and stellar performances by the cast including Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh, Tanya Maniktala, Elnaaz Norouzi, Gautam Mehra, and Kshitij Chauhan amongst others.
While the new-age, quirky show highlights the relevance of the Internet and social media in everyone’s life, it also talks about the influence of social media on youth, dating apps, and long-distance relationships. Interestingly, there is more to the show than meets the eye! Several factors including social media, dating apps, and long-distance relationships hint at the possibility of the show being loosely inspired by the infamous Bois locker room incident!

For those unaware, a PIL was filed in the Delhi High Court seeking a Special Investigation Team (SIT) or the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the incident of “Bois Locker Room”, an Instagram group in which obscene messages and morphed pictures of underage girls were shared and demanded the arrest of the offenders. The screenshots from Bois Locker Room instantly went viral and became a talking point on social media.

A source informs, “In the trailer of the show, a few characters are apparently shown discussing women with reference to social media, and their conversations centre around them trying to attract young girls for the purpose of dating and relationships. The show also features other interesting characters who strongly believe in the concept of long-distance relationships. While the show seems to be a roller-coaster ride featuring different interesting stories on the world of the internet, it would be equally interesting to see if the makers have drawn any references from the Bois locker room incident.”
