LUCKNOW: The Uttar Pradesh police filed a case against the new OTT series 'Tandav' for insulting Hindu gods and a top aide warning of arrests.

A complaint was filed by Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam and the centre's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting reportedly sought a response from the streaming service Amazon Prime.

Makers of 'Tandav' and Amazon's head of India Original Content have been accused in the case of promoting religious enmity.

The case is related to a scene where the character played by Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub dresses up as Lord Shiva in a bland manner.
