In the letter, the Minister of State said that Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Starr not only hurt the sentiments of Eelam Tamils but also hurt the sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu.

MDMK leader Vaiko also demanded a ban from Javadekar on Sunday and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, the leader of Naam Tamilar Katchi and actor-director Seaman have also demanded a ban on the series.

He also said that the series has already faced widespread opposition from the people of Tamil Nadu as well as the political parties of the state. The protest started as soon as the web series trailer was released. People protested fiercely against this web series and on the second day on Twitter, #ShameonYouSamantha started trending.
