Amazon Prime Video is soon coming up with an Amazon Original Series ‘Tandav’ and the stellar and versatile actor Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub is all set for its release.
The actor reminisced his college days while shooting for the show and said, “I re-lived my college days with Tandav. We shot a lot of college sequences in the same college & hostel where I studied (Delhi University North Campus). College days are the building blocks of your life you can’t easily forget. You spend lots of time on the college campus with friends, free of all worries and problems, just having fun and not realizing how many memories you’re making in the process. And that’s what Tandav did for me. It surrounded me with a wave of nostalgia that brought back a herd of emotions attached to it. It was fun shooting in a real college space – we shot 85% of the college scenes in one go. Shooting on campus made me reminisce the good old days when my friends and I didn’t have much money in our pockets, but we had a lot of life in our hearts. Our staple diet was garam chai with Maggi and pulling pranks on classmates, and through Tandav I got to relive my prime days again.”
Adding to that, he said “We also shot some sequences in the local theatres of Mandi House. So, I relived my theatre days as well. The best part was going back to the same place where I started years ago.”
A strong ensemble cast features the 9-episode political drama and it is produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Ali Abbas Zafar the cast includes Hitten Ttejwani, Sarah Jane Dias, Gauahar Khan, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Amyra Dastur, Sandhya Mridul, Paresh Pahuja, Kritika Kamra, Mohd.

The viewers will get a chance to dive inside the closed, chaotic corridors of power with Tandav which is set in the capital city of the world’s largest democracy, and unveil the manipulations, charades as well as the dark secrets of people who will go to any lengths in pursuit of power.
