I&B Ministry notice to Amazon Prime over ‘Tandav’ Web series

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) on Sunday has issued notice to Amazon Prime, seeking its explanation to the complaints against its web series named ‘Tandav’ starring Saif Ali Khan for hurting religious sentiments and denigrating Hindu gods and goddesses.

The move comes after BJP MP Manoj Kotak said he has written to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar on Suday for seeking a ban on Amazon Prime Video's webseries 'Tandav' over ridiculing Hindu deities.

'Tandav' is a political drama starring Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Dino Morea, Kumud Mishra, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, Gauhar Khan and Kritika Kamra. It premiered on the Amazon Prime on Friday.
