Tandav 2 featuring some big names like Saif Ali Khan and Dimple Kapadia was a political drama that was released on Amazon Prime in 2021 right before the second wave of the pandemic. While the critics appreciated its content, the show went on to receive flak because some claimed that certain content in the show hurt their religious sentiments. Owing to the controversy that followed, season 2 of the show is currently facing a dilemma. Speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama, Amyra Dastur, who was an integral part of it, confessed that it is disappointing that they are unable to go ahead with it because of the political angst it was subjected to.

In Tandav, Amyra Dastur played the role of Ada Mir, the disturbed sister of Sana Mir with a traumatic past. The role of her sister was essayed by Kritika Kamra. While she did not receive much screen space in the first season of the political drama, the second season was expected to take the story of her character further. Talking about the web show to Bollywood Hungama, Amyra elaborated, “The whole point of me being in Season 1 was that in Season 2 my character propels and goes higher. But it is definitely disappointing that you can’t make the series (the second season of Tandav) because of the political angst against it and because people misunderstood a lot of things in it.”

She went on to add, “You don’t make something to offend someone or intentionally hurt someone. I am sorry that those sentiments were hurt. But at the end of the day, cinema is an art and it is subjective. I don’t think you should be stopped from making art.”

Amyra Dastur will next be seen in the Punjabi film Jogi based on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and will feature her alongside popular actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial will premiere on Netflix on September 16.
