While talking about the show, directed Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that he “wanted Tandav to be a film”. He went on to share that eventually, he realised the story needed more screen time. “When I spoke to Himanshu Kishan Mishra the concept kept getting broader then I realised that it cannot be done as a three-hour film. This is before Sultan happened,” Ali added.
Saif Ali Khan who plays the lead role in the film revealed that Tandav is about “people and pressure”. He said that the fictional show focuses more on the people and added, “Its dressed up and has a lot of murder and drama. It didn’t really have to be about politics, it could be about anything. But we are a political country and we love to talk about it.”
The synopsis of Tandav reads, “Set in the capital city of the world’s largest democracy, Tandav, the series will take viewers inside the closed, chaotic corridors of power and uncover the manipulations, charades as well as the dark secrets of people who will go to any lengths in pursuit of power.”
The nine-episode series has been produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Ali Abbas Zafar. Tandav will premiere on January 15.
