In the recently released Amazon Prime series Tandav, there was a scene where they show a play about a comedic interaction between Lord Shiva and Narad.

There was some backlash regarding the religious sentiments involved.

But my question is why the blue cross on the face of the actor to portray Lord Shiva?

  • My guess would be to show the blue skin of Shiva without actually painting his whole face blue and maybe make it look a bit 'modern' or 'fashionable'. I don't see any other underlying meaning
