Saif Ali Khan has been receiving audience and critical praise for his role in both seasons of Sacred Games, Netflix India's finest original series till date. Continuing his digital career, the Bollywood actor, also known as Chhote Nawab, is all set to feature in Netflix's upcoming original series for India. Titled 'Tandav', this Netflix series will be a political thriller, on the lines of Kevin Spacey's House Of Cards. Let's have a look at all the details of Saif Ali Khan's upcoming Netflix political thriller series, Tandav.
According to a PTI report, Saif Ali Khan will play the lead role on Tandav, being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Bharat, Sultan). “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,” Khan said in a statement.
“I don’t want to use American examples, but it’s along the lines of House Of Cards, although set within the framework of Indian politics. The plot takes into account various factions like Dalit politics and UP cops and the whole nexus between them,” he added.
House Of Cards is the story of American politician Frank Underwood who rises through the ranks, using deceit and power, in an attempt to become the President of the United States. While Kevin Spacey headlined the first few seasons of the Netflix show, he was soon replaced by lead actress Robin Wright as the protagonist.
