Birthday boy Ali Abbas Zafar's debut web series Tandav has landed in some serious trouble. Amid the growing demands of calling a ban on the series by netizens, the latest development is that security has beefed up outside Tandav's lead actor Saif Ali Khan's home in the suburbs of Mumbai. On Sunday, the paparazzi snapped a police van outside the main gate of Saif's old residence. For the unversed, Saif and Kareena are in the process of shifting to their new home which is just down the street. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam on Sunday filed a police complaint against the creators, actors and director of Tandav for allegedly "insulting Hindu gods and goddesses". The news was confirmed by ANI as Kadam, while speaking to the news wire agency, demanded strict action against the show's creators. 

BJP's Ram Kadam filed the complaint at Ghatkopar police station in Mumbai for allegedly insulting Hindu Gods. He said, "Strict against should be taken against the actor, director and producer of the web series." Meanwhile, BJP MP Manoj Kotak wrote to Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar, requesting him to ban Tandav. 

Justifying the ban, Kotak said, "It seems that makers of Tandav have deliberately mocked Hindu Gods & disrespected Hindu religious sentiments." In his letter to Javdekar, Kotal also wrote that shows on OTT are "full of sex, violence, drugs, abuse and hate (and) sometimes also hurt sentiments of Hindus." 

Take a look at BJP Ram Kadam and Manoj Kotak's complaints below: 

Meanwhile, on Saturday as well as on Sunday, several trends like 'Ban Tandav Now' and '#BoycottBollywood' were doing the rounds on Twitter as netizens expressed their displeasure over the show.

Watched Tandav and loved it! This outrage on social media is not representative of the silent majority. I am a practicing Hindu and my belief system is not so insecure that a 30 second scene will hurt my feelings. It’s not even offensive...a man on stage dressed like Lord Shiva when finds himself I trouble utters expletives...a normal human reaction. Agenda driven outrage to drown out farmers protest and Arnabgate!!

Watched Tandav, loved it. Btw I am pure breed of Hindu but can't stand Andh Bhakt. Will this statement make me Anti-Hindu or Anti nation? Need Z+ cactus security so that cows won't bite.

Ban Tandav, penalize the makers, Jail them. Punish hevily so thes guys dare not disrespect Hindu or any othher religion. However, I think Saif's mother Sharmila is responsible for not installing good values. Her son names her grand son "Taimur, she should be ashamed. The stupid lady in her greed has produced such uneducated kids. God will punish her.

No one ever insult any religion. Politicians just do it for publicity.
