Tandav has been created by Ali Abbas Zafar, the filmmaker behind Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Bharat. The show marks his digital debut alongside Kapadia, last seen in Christopher Nolan's Tenet.

"Through Tandav, we take audiences into the power-hungry world of politics. 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 heavyweights 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," Zafar had said in a statement, according to DNA.

Produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Zafar, the show premieres on 15 January.
