The trailer of the show takes viewers behind the closed, chaotic corridors of power and politics. Set in the capital of the world’s largest democracy, the series is a gripping, fictional drama that showcases the lengths people go to in the pursuit of power.
Talking about his character in Tandav, Saif Ali Khan said, “The entertainment industry in India is going through a renaissance and stories like Tandav are at the forefront of this change. As an actor, for me a good piece of dramatic writing and a compelling creation featuring grey characters is always exciting. As I read about the complexities of my character Samar and dived deeper into the world of Tandav, I knew that I had to play this character.”
“Tandav is a political thriller drama,” said Dimple Kapadia. “It is a fiction that perhaps gives you a vivid insight into backroom politicking and what goes on in the country’s power corridors. Anuradha is the kind of character that I have never played before and I am glad to be making my digital debut into digital streaming with a show that is backed by a credible cast and crew. With multiple layers and so many characters I hope this series intrigues and engages the audience.”
“In Tandav, I will not be seen wearing a sari and making people laugh!” exclaimed Sunil Grover. Talking about his character, Sunil added, “Gurpal is a multi-layered character and something I have never done. Having worked with Ali earlier, I knew that Tandav will be a compelling storyline that is edgy yet entertaining. Ali has created a world that is gripping and given my character the depth that an actor longs for. Saying yes to this role was instinctive and working with accomplished artists such as Saif, Dimple ji is a bonus. Hope Tandav entertains everyone.”
