Netflix is facing a copyright infringement suit for its documentary Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator. Ghosh's Yoga College, based in Kolkata, claims video footage and photographs used in the documentary belongs to the institute, and demands its immediate removal. The documentary showcases certain footage from of Bikram learning yoga and attending school. The ambassador for the college, Ida Jo, has stated that when the production team contracted her for permission to use the footage, the same was denied as the Ghosh family has no interest in being involved with the documentary. Netflix's use of the footage after being denied from using the same by the College is a violation of the copyright of the College, as per the claim.
