Mumbai: Maharashtra BJP MLA Ram Kadam on Sunday filed a complaint against makers of Amazon Prime web series 'Tandav' for allegedly insulting Hindu gods and goddesses.

He said police have assured him quick investigation into the matter.

"Filed complaint against Tandav Web Series at Ghatkopar police station. Police has assured quick investigation, FIR under Sec 295A of IPC, Section 67A of IT Act & Atrocities Act.Producer, Director, Writer, Actors & Amazon to be summoned soon. #BanTandavNow #Boycottandav," he tweeted.

He earlier questioned: "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."

He also demanded the Centre to create a body to review OTT platform movies and web series.

BJP MP Manoj Kotak also echoed similar thoughts and tweeted: "OTT Platforms having absolute freedom from censorship has led to repeated attacks on Hindu sentiments which I strongly condemn.spoke to hon. @PrakashJavdekar ji & requested that OTT content be regulated in the interest of integrity of India & we are fast moving in that direction."

Tandav, the story of which is based in India's national capital Delhi, revolves around the politics of the country.

Apart from Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, the web series stars Dimple Kapadia, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub in the lead roles.

Tandav is streaming on Over-the-top (OTT) platform Amazon Prime Video from Jan 15.
