Absolutism is the enemy of expression but what happens when this absolutism is used a watch guard of expression? It sounds ironical right! But this is what we are going to address in the paper. Freedom of expression is not just a right but a lifestyle and a livelihood. India has cosmopolitan population but we lack with our tolerance. The tolerance we are talking about is respect of viewership on OTT platforms. OTT platforms are audio and video hosting platforms, initially started as content hosting platforms but with the development of time have branched into production houses. E.g. we often hear that certain web series or movies are Netflix or prime originals. Censorship means severing or restricting the content recognized as offensive by government or other self regulating bodies. Censorship is a universal controversial issue as it poses threat to freedom of expression. In this paper we are seeking to address the state of affairs created through censorship on OTT platforms.
