Amazon Prime Video has knelt before Indian extremists due to a controversial web series. Indian director Abbas Tafar’s web series ‘Tandav‘ is based on Indian politics which extremist parties did not like. He was criticized for the film’s theme and story, and extremist Hindus demanded from all actors, including filmmakers, an apology.
Extremist Hindus not only demanded the removal of controversial scenes from Ali Abbas Zafar’ web series but also filed cases against the actors, after which the filmmakers formally apologized. Even after the apology was issued, the extremist parties kept their heads high and, adopting their traditional style, announced to give crores of rupees to those who cut the tongues of the actors.
However, in view of this situation, Amazon has now retreated. Amazon Prime Video apologized and said that we have to say with regret that some users had raised objections on some scenes of the web series. As soon as this was known, those mantras were edited and some were deleted. We respect our viewers and apologize if our actions have offended anyone.
Amazon Prime Video also said in its tweet that while respecting cultural diversity and consumer choice, such web in accordance with Indian laws Keep making series.
