More about Tandav

Created and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Tandav will ‘take audiences into the power-hungry world of politics’, he said in a statement. “As you watch the show, you’ll realize that there is no right or wrong, there is no black or white; world of power is about the world of greys,” he added.

Saif, who made his digital debut with Netflix’s Sacred Games, had previously described his character as ‘Chanakya-like’. He’d told PTI, “My character is Chanakya-like, in the guise of a youth leader who comes from a privileged background and aspires to become the Prime Minister.”

The show was previously titled Dilli, which both Saif and Ali were unsure about.

“I hope it’s not eventually called Dilli. Tandav was the working title which captured more the essence of what the show was about. Dilli is a little thanda (cold) really. I don’t think we have either titles, Dilli or Tandav. We have to work hard to come up with something a little sexier like House of Cards. Something with a little more poetry to the title than just a geographical location,” Saif had told journalist Rajeev Masand.
