Unconditional Apology Issued by Amazon Prime on Web series Tandav; Objectionable Scene either Edited or Removed

Amazon Prime has issued an unconditional apology for hurting religious sentiments with their web series, Tandav. Only a week ago, a top executive from the company was questioned by the Uttar Pradesh police for over four hours over allegations of hurting religious sentiments and spreading communal hatred through their show. Amazon Prime apologized unconditionally for the web series " Tandav". This is Amazon Prime India’s third apology statement. The first two were issued by director Ali Abbas Zafar after several police complaints against the show and its team were filed in various parts of the country. Amazon Prime Video has issued a statement apologising for ‘objectionable’ scenes in the web series Tandav on Tuesday evening. The statement came days after the Allahabad High Court rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Aparna Purohit, the India content chief of Amazon Prime Video, who has been booked in 10 FIRs across the country for hurting religious sentiments in the web series. Earlier, filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar had said sorry in a statement on behalf of the cast and crew of the show. “Amazon Prime Video again deeply regrets that viewers considered certain scenes to be objectionable in the recently launched series Tandav. This was never our intention, and the scenes that were objected to were removed or edited when they were brought to our attention," said Amazon Prime in its letter of apology. The statement further said, "We respect our viewers’ diverse beliefs and apologise unconditionally to anyone who felt hurt by these scenes." Our teams follow company content evaluation processes, which we acknowledge need to be constantly updated to better serve our audiences. We will continue to develop entertaining content with partners, while complying with the laws of India and respecting the diversity of culture and beliefs of our audiences,” said the statement of Amazon Prime Video India. "The web series Tandav is a work of fiction and any resemblance to acts and persons and events is purely coincidental. The cast and crew did not have any intention to offend the sentiments of any individual, caste, community, race, religion or religious beliefs or insult or outrage any institution, political party or person, living or dead. The cast and crew of Tandav take cognizance of the concerns expressed by the people and unconditionally apologize if it has unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments,” Amazon Prime added in their official statement
