On January 19, 2021, an FIR was lodged on the complaint of one Balbir Azad of Raunija village under Rabupura police station of Greater Noida. Several other FIRs have also been lodged in states like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Bihar and Delhi. Tandav is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
The Allahabad High Court on Thursday rejected the anticipatory bail plea filed by the head of Amazon Prime Video's India Originals Aparna Purohit, who has been accused of an inappropriate depiction of Uttar Pradesh police personnel, Hindu deities and an adverse portrayal of a character playing the prime minister in the web series "Tandav".
"As an actor, I look for characters that have layers to them, that challenge and excite me at the same time," Kamra said. "I have two exciting web shows coming up this year and I am reading some interesting film scripts as well," Kritika revealed. The actress shot to fame with roles in TV shows such as 'Kitani Mohobbat Hai' to 'Reporters'.
Ayyub's lawyer defended the alleged objectionable part of the web series, saying that as an actor he has no artistic control over dialogues spoken by him. Screenwriter-lyricist Mayur Puri said it was "ridiculous" to hold an actor responsible for the actions of a fictional character. In November last year, the government brought OTT platforms besides other online news and current affairs content under the ambit of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
