New Delhi, Feb 7 : Actress Amyra Dastur becomes a part of Ali Abbas Zafar directorial political thriller series, headlined by Saif Ali Khan, which will soon be released on Amazon Prime Video.

Confirming the same, Amyra 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 that the project remains untitled as of now. On how the offer came about, Amyra reveals, "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." "It's a 10 episode series where all of us keep coming and going in several episodes. It's a dark, grey show which is every bit delicious. I have done 'The Trip' before this but the Amazon series will be my first major web show,' she added. (UNI)
