"Why is it becoming a trend amongst films and web series makers to demean Hindu gods? Latest culprit seems to be the series #Tandav. #SaifAliKhan again part of a film or series which attempts to target Hindu deities. Director Ali Abbas Zafar needs to remove that scene which mocks Hindu God Shiva. Actor Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub needs to apologise and Tandav should be boycotted until necessary changes are made," Kadam tweeted. 

On Saturday, BJP MP Manoj Kotak made an appeal to Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar to regulate OTT content as they are "full of sex, violence, drugs, abuse and hate (and) sometimes also hurt sentiments of Hindus."

In the wake of this, security outside Saif's residence in Mumbai has been beefed up.
