However, some users are still not happy with his clarification and asking for a fair action on the movie makers and actors.
And not just fans, but the BJP MLA Ram Kadam has also raised questions over the web series and Saif Ali Khan’s choice. He asked actor to clarify his reason to signing Tandav and his role in the controversy.
Many supporters agree to Ram Kadam’s question and have also followed him for lodging a complaint against the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video. Due to intense political pressure by few leaders, Tandav’s cast and crew has to apologies which does not seem enough for the BJP leader.
