After Tandav, an FIR has now been registered against producers of Amazon Prime’s show Mirzapur for hurting "religious sentiments" and tarnishing the image of the town in Uttar Pradesh.

The FIR has named show producers Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Bhaumik Gondaliya under IPC sections 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or reli­gious beliefs), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of the IPC along with sections of the Information Technology (IT) Act, the Indian Express reported.

The second season of Mirzapur had premiered on the streaming platform in October last year. The series also faced backlash and boycott calls on social media.

 “Arvind Chaturvedi alleged that the web series has showed abusive content and illicit relations. Thus, based on the complaint, an FIR has been registered against producers and the platform,” Indian Express quoted SP of Mirzapur, Ajay Kumar as saying,
