Gauahar Khan, who plays Maithili in Tandav, reacted to the Supreme Court ruling with emojis. Retweeting a tweet saying the actors playing murderers could then go on trial for the crime, she shared three faces with monocle emojis. Richa Chadha commented on the “priorities” of the court.
A bench heard the case of Judges Ashok Bhushan, RS Reddy and MR Shah. “Your right to freedom of expression is not absolute. You can’t play the role of a character who hurts the feelings of a community, ”said Bench.
Multiple FIRs against director, producer, writer, cast and Amazon India Originals director Aparna Purohit have been filed in six states. The makers of Tandav face criminal charges for infringing religious sentiments and insulting religion punishable under Articles 153A and 295 of the Indian Penal Code.
This web show is in the eye of a storm for allegedly showing Hindu deities in a bad light. Last week, a team of Uttar Pradesh police officers arrived in Mumbai to interview the show’s creators.
