BJP leader Ram Kadam has demanded an explanation from Saif Ali Khan, who played the character Samar Pratap Singh in the web series. Kadam asked:

Whenever an actor signs a film or a web series, he’s narrated the script. A seasoned actor like Saif Ali Khan would have clearly known what was the content of the series and yet he agreed to do it. So we have a question for Saif. Why didn’t he say no to such a project where the religious sentiments of Hindus are being hurt? Why didn’t he say such content is inappropriate? So we want to know what is the position of the talented actor in this regard.

5. Ram Kadam has called for nationwide protests to put a ban on the Amazon Prime app and the web series Tandav, also asking for the deletion of allegedly triggering scenes.

6. Security tightened outside Saif Ali Khan’s residence and two of Amazon’s offices following protests and complaints from BJP leaders.
