The latest projects from Ali Abbas Zafar

In the professional field, the filmmaker recently published his web series Tandav. The series received criticism from the audience for violating Hindu religious sentiments and belittling their gods in one of the episodes. It has also been criticized as an anti-Dalit, which led to the Bharatiya Janata Party calling for the show to be banned. Many FIRs were filed against the political thriller series from Maharashtra, Karnataka Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

The filmmaker then unconditionally apologized to the Hindu community. “The cast and crew had no intention of harming the feelings of any person, caste, community, race, religion, or religious belief, or offending or revolting any institution or political party or person, living or dead,” he wrote in the posted note on Instagram. He also wrote that the resemblance to actions and people and events was purely coincidental.
