Ali Abbas Zafar's Process Of Working With Salman Khan Disapproved By Saif Ali Khan On Tandav Sets?
Ali Abbas Zafar On Working With Saif Ali Khan
Ali Abbas Zafar and Saif Ali Khan are coming together for the first time for the Amazon Prime Video web series Tandav. While the product of their labour is creating a lot of excitement among fans and it seems that the director and star didn’t really have an instant connection when it comes to work. Ali who has worked on several projects with Salman Khan before working with Saif had his process with the superstar to fall back on which really wasn’t doing it for the Tandav star.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama Ali said, "My and bhai's (Salman) relationship is such that even when the take is on or I feel he is in the mood or he is still going, I can give him a direction even when the shot is on. I was coming from this thought and I went straight into Tandav and I started doing this with Saif. He used to get thrown back. 'You cannot talk to me when the shot is on', he (Saif) would tell me."

The filmmaker added, "It took him (Saif) one week to get used to this style of directing when the camera is rolling, everybody is still on their mark and I am talking to him and explaining him and he is going back again into the take. Somewhere in the mid of the shoot I stopped doing this and one day he shouted at me, 'Talk to me I am not being able to perform'."
Tandav is a drama with Saif playing a powerful politician. The show with its trailer has already created a great buzz about the show ahead of its release on 15 January 2021.
