Tandav, a nine-part series, also marks the digital debut of Ali Abbas Zafar, who is known for directing Salman Khan in films like Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan and Bharat. Talking about his series, Ali said in a statement: “As you watch the show, you’ll realise that there is no right or wrong, there is no black or white; world of power is about the world of greys. I believe that content must be backed by credible performances and I am fortunate to have such heavy weights in the show. I’m excited that my debut as a creator-director in the digital domain is with Amazon Prime Video which will take this intriguing and gripping story of Tandav to millions across the world,” reported news agency PTI.
