Tandav On Amazon Prime: FIR Registered In Uttar Pradesh Against The Makers; What Is The Controversy Surrounding New Web-Series


"Tandav", Amazon Prime's new web series, faces criminal action. Uttar Pradesh police filed a case against the makers & the streaming service over the alleged insult to Hindu gods, warning of arrests. The case was filed hours after the centre's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting sought a response from Amazon Prime on a complaint filed by Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam. The director of the series Ali Abbas Zafar, producer Himanshu Krishna Mehra, writer Gaurav Solanki and others have also been named in the FIR. They have been accused in the case of promoting religious enmity & defiling a place of worship. A complaint has been filed at Lucknow's Hazratganj police station by a sub-inspector who is also posted there. Soon after the case was registered, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's media adviser Shalabh Mani Tripathi shared a copy of it on Twitter. Tandav, starring actors Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Dino Morea, Kumud Mishra, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, Gauahar Khan & Kritika Kamra, premiered on the streaming platform on January 15.
