Tandav: Saif Ali Khan In Trouble Again (And This Time He Didn't Do Anything)
It has become  a national habit  for Saif Ali Khan to get into trouble with his words and work. Just the other day some people were  gunning for  him for speaking  of humanizing Ravan  . Now Saif has got  into trouble  for something he has nothing directly to do with.

In his  new webseries Tandav a scene involving actor Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub has  certain sections infuriated. 

Says  a close friend of Saif and Kareena, "They are expecting  a child any day. The  last thing they need  is this kind  of  tension. Security personnel  standing outside your door is  not the  best way to welcome baby  into your home."

Netizens have expressed  huge disappointment  and anger   over  certain scenes in the series. A politician has  asked for a  boycott of Tandav until   actor Mohammed Ayyub Zeeshan  apologizes to  all Indians for allegedly "mocking  a Hindu God". In  the allegedly offensive sequence Zeeshan is seen dressed  up as Lord Shiva  during a stage performance  and  commenting that the number of Shiva Bhakts is increasing in  the country by  the day .

 An angry  twitter user wrote, “How many times Hindu sentiments will be hurt. Hindus are the most progressive people they don't shout on the road, they don't burn city they don't set houses and shops on fire. It doesn't mean they have no sentiment. So stop hurting Hindus #BanTandavNow”

Saif Ali Khan who  plays  a wily politicians  in Tandav who poisons his own father to  get the prime minister’s  seat, is  no stranger to controversies. Prior to Tandav  his comments  on  “humanizing” Ravan in his  forthcoming project Adipurish triggered off a  nationwide outrage.
