Amazon Prime Video is offering its viewers one amazing show after another. The OTT platform recently announced its slate for the originals they have planned this year. One such original happens to be a political thriller. This political thriller that’s directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, will star Saif Ali Khan in the lead. We have now got to know that Amyra Dastur is also a part of the series.
Confirming the same, Amyra Dastur shares,
“Yes, I’m doing the political thriller which is Ali Abbas Zafar’s next. It’s a delicious script that got me completely hooked. Saif is one of the finest actors that we have today and the kind of work he’s doing is putting us on a global map. Apart from Saif, the show has some amazing actors like Sunil Grover, Gauahar Khan and Zeeshan Ayyub in it. So it was a yes for me from the word go because the story is extremely fascinating.”
Although it was reported that the show has been titled Taandav or Dilli, a source tells us that the project remains untitled as of now.
Talking about how she got the offer, the actress says,
“I got a call from Ali sir’s team and I was quite intrigued by it. Then, I found out he’s written it as well. It’s all about politics where each of us has important roles to play. Right now, with whatever is happening around us, everyone’s eyes are on this and the games that get played in the political world. My knowledge about politics has widened because of the show. I read the entire season because I’m not somebody who likes to just read my part. I loved the story because people are not going to just remember your characters but the show in totality.”
She further adds,
“It’s a ten-episode series where all of us keep coming and going in several episodes. It’s a dark, grey show which is every bit delicious.”
This isn’t the first time she’s doing a web show. Amyra Dastur says,
“I have done The Trip before this but the Amazon series will be my first major web show. Actually, I’m doing another one with Amazon this year.”
