Scoop: Here Is Why Netflix Opted Out Of Dev Patel’s Monkey Man

There has been widespread speculation as to why Netflix suddenly abandoned Dev Patel’s bloodsoaked directorial debut Monkey Man after sanctioning the costly film and spending extensively on it.
A source close to Netflix spilled the beans, “Monkey Man is filled with sharp direct potshots at the ruling government. There is sloganeering and hoardings pointing fingers at India’s political system throughout the film. After what Amazon had gone through with Tandav, Netflix didn’t want to repeat the same mistake.”
After Netflix pulled the plug on Dev Patel’s project, director-Producer Jordan Peele stepped in to rescue the project.
Now that the film has been released in the rest of the world, it is unlikely that Monkey Man will get an opening in India, even after the desperate attempts to paint the saffron colour in hoardings into red.
