Produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Ali Abbas Zafar, ‘Tandav’ is created and directed by Zafar making it his digital directorial debut. The trailer of the show takes viewers behind the closed, chaotic corridors of power and politics of India. The trailer begins with the demise of Saif Ali Khan’s father in the show who is serving as the Prime Minister of India and is not willing to retire anytime soon. Following his father’s demise, Khan’s character Samar feels that he will inherit the throne as his party had won the Lok Sabha elections. Set in the capital of the world’s largest democracy, the trailer then travels the gripping twists with several characters fighting each other to come into power. Highlighting issues like student politics and the tussle for power between mem- bers of the same political party, the series showcases the extent to which people go in the pursuit of power. Talking about his character in ‘Tandav,’ 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 cre- ation 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,” he added. Along with Zafar, Tandav also marks the digital debut for actors Dimple Kapadia and Kritika Kamra. Kapadia is portraying the role of an- other senior party member from Khan’s political party who believes herself to be fit to be the next Prime Minister. “Tandav is a political thriller drama. Anuradha (Kapadia’s character) is the kind of character that I have never played before. With multiple layers and so many characters I hope this series intrigues and engages the audience,” said Kapadia. The nine-episode engrossing political drama is written by Gaurav Solanki and features a stellar ensemble cast includ- ing Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Dino Morea, Kumud Mishra, Gauahar Khan, Amyra Dastur, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, and Kritika Kamra, among others. The show that sees Khan in the role of a charismatic political leader will release on Amazon Prime Video on January 15. - ANI United Nations Selects Manushi Chhillar To Bat For Women’s Safety F ormer MissWorld and Bollywood actor Manushi Chhillar has been chosen by United NationsWomen (The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment ofWomen) for a global initiative #OrangeTheWorld to raise awareness on gender- based violence. Chhillar who also runs her own initiative ‘Project Shakti’ on menstrual hygiene, aims to encourage women to raise their voice against violence through the new initiative #OrangeTheWorld. Through a video that she posted on Instagram, Chhil- lar was on Saturday seen raising her voice on the issue. “Women are most susceptible to violence in various forms and they face it almost everywhere. Women across all age groups are at constant risk and it is heart-breaking to feel this as a woman myself,” the former MissWorld said. “At one point or another, we all have known someone who has been at the receiving end of violence. But what do we do about it? It’s crucial that we stand by survivors, believe them, support them to report abuse, and make our voices heard,” she added. The 23-year-old actor also threw light on the fact that the cases of domestic violence in the country shot up during the COVID-19 pandemic induced lockdown when most people stayed at home. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, the shadow (em- phasis) pandemic of violence against women has grown darker. Cases of Domestic Violence have increased. But as we work towards emerging from COVID-19 we need to also actively work towards rebuilding a world that’s safe for women,” Chhilar said. Through the ‘#OrangeTheWorld’ initiative, Chhil- lar along with the United NationsWomen organisation will be working on ending online harassment of women among other forms of harassment. The 23-year-old actor who will soon make her Bolly- wood debut through YRF’s ‘Prithviraj’ also called for end- ing physical, psychological, and sexual violence against women through her Instagram stories. - ANI REUTERS Photo:Twitter Photo courtesyAmazon PrimeviaSterling Global Manushi Chillar, Miss World 2017.
