It has hardly been a day since the series has been released and it has already landed into trouble. A section of Twitterati have blamed the makers of the show for allegedly ‘mocking’ Hindu Gods through Tandav and hence labelled it as ‘anti-Hindu series’. They are using the hashtags #BanTandavNow and #BoycottTandav and demanding it to be removed. Tandav Tweet Review: ‘Powerful’ or ‘Propaganda’?
