Actor Tanuj Virwani who plays the menacing antagonist in the Disney+ Hotstar’s new web series Kamathipura woke up on Sunday morning to the shocking news that its release was postponed from March 8 to an indefinite date.

The flash-decision to do an Operation Cleanup was taken by Disney+ Hotstar’s top-ranking officials to avoid controversy, moral policing and litigation.
