People online slammed Hotstar and urged them to cancel the show.

Online streaming service Hotstar announced Tuesday that they are adapting hit show The Office in Hindi as part of their Original shows, but they got a hostile reception from Indian fans of the US show on social media.

Many channelled the character of Michael Scott (portrayed by Steve Carell in the US series) and responded to the Hindi trailer saying, “No. NO. NO. NOOOOO”. One of the most popular American sitcoms that aired from 2005 to 2013, the show was adapted from a BBC series by the same name.
