Konkona Sensharma is bewildered with the stir around the web series Tandav. She wonders if the entire team will be held accountable for making the series. Reacting to the Supreme Court's decision to refuse to protect the makers and actors of Tandav from arrest, Konkona on Thursday tweeted: "Almost all involved in the show have read the script and signed the contract! Let's arrest the whole cast and crew?" Set in Delhi, Tandav revolves around the themes of power, ambition and greed in the world of politics.

Soon after it dropped in OTT space, the series drew the ire of a section of politicians as well as public who claimed the show provokes communal disharmony and hurts Hindu sentiments. According to the complaints, a scene featuring Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub performing a college play insults the Hindu deity Shiv.
