    'Tandav' Makers Agree To Changes, Go Beyond Apology

    Tandav cast, crew offered an “unconditional apology” on Monday following police complaints

    The makers of Amazon Prime series Tandav have said they will make changes in the content “to address concerns”, a little over 24 hours after a police complaint was filed over hurting religious sentiments. Today’s statement comes after the Tandav cast and crew yesterday offered an “unconditional apology” following police complaints in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh that alleged some scenes “insulted Hindu gods and goddesses”.

    “The cast and crew of Tandav have made the decision to implement changes to the web series to address the concerns raised towards the same… We once again apologise if the series has unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments,” the cast and crew of Tandav said in a statement today.

    “We have outmost respect for the sentiments of the people of our country. We did not intend to hurt or offend the sentiments of any individual, caste, community, race, religion or religious beliefs or insult or outrage any institution, political party or person, living or dead,” they said.

    The web series, which stars Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, was released on Friday. It quickly triggered protests and drew criticism on social media.

    A complaint filed yesterday by a policeman in Uttar Pradesh said that 17 minutes into the first episode, he saw “people dressed up in a very bad manner to represent Hindu gods and goddesses… shown to speak in a very uncalled for language… that hurts religious sentiments”.

    The makers of Tandav increasingly came under criticism after an aide of UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath warned those named in the police complaint to “be prepared to pay the price”. “Be prepared to pay the price for hurting religious sentiments… UP Police has left for Mumbai in a vehicle,” Mr Adityanath’s advisor Shalabh Mani Tripathi tweeted in Hindi, alluding to gangster Vikas Dubey, who was killed in an encounter last year while being transported in a police vehicle.
