The Supreme Court Wednesday declined to grant interim protection from arrest to the makers and actors who starred in the web series-- ‘Tandav’. However, the apex court said they can seek bail from concerned lower courts.

A bench comprising justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and M R Shah was hearing as many as three separate petitions filed by director Ali Abbas Zafar, Amazon Prime India head Aparna Purohit, producer Himanshu Mehra, the show's writer Gaurav Solanki and actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.

Besides seeking quashing of the FIRs, the pleas also sought clubbing of FIRs.

The SC bench sought responses from states such as Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Bihar and Delhi on the pleas.

"Tandav", a nine-episode political thriller starring Bollywood A-listers Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia and Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub.
