Tandav premiered on Amazon Prime Video on January 15. Starring Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Kritika Kamra, Gauahar Khan, Anup Soni, Sandhya Mridul, Dino Morea, and Sunil Grover among others, it’s a political drama that has emerged as the biggest series of the year so far. The show has attracted criticism from a section of the audience who have majorly objected to two scenes: One in which Zeeshan’s character named Shiva is seen using the ‘F’ word while doing a play, and the other in which Sandhya Mridul’s character is mouthing a dialogue about ‘Dalits’.
