Since the launch of the teaser of Amazon Original Series Tandav, it has become one of the anticipated shows of 2021. Recently director Ali Abbas Zafar took it on his Twitter to share a behind the scenes moment from the shooting days as they were seen playing cricket amid the shooting.
Tandav actor Sunil Grover shared, “We shot a lot of our scenes in Pataudi Palace during the winter season. It’s a very beautiful place and a must-visit place for winters. There are a lot of pictures of Tiger Pataudi Sahab in the place from his generation when he used to play cricket. As we spent a lot of time there, cricket was our favorite pastime. We all including Saif Ali Khan, Ali Abbas Sir, Zeeshan, and everyone enjoyed playing cricket during our shoot breaks. Saif is a very humble man. While we all enjoyed playing cricket together, I and Saif became very good friends off-screen.”
