Sudhir Mishra, Show Director
With Tanaav, my aim was to explore and delve into variety of human emotions. Every action is reaction to the events experienced by us. There is always a tug-of-war between the brain and heart. This is what Tanaav is. We wanted to spark the audience’s conscience by showing each character’s complex and existential battle. As a filmmaker, I’ve always been inquisitive in exploring the complexities of the human psyche in depth and the show has given me a chance to do it. I’m glad to bring a story like this that is backed by powerhouses like Sony LIV and Applause Entertainment.

Tanaav has been developed keeping in mind the ever-expanding need for high-quality, versatile content as well as the changing tastes and preferences of our audiences. While on one hand it is a nail-biting thriller on the other it is also a human drama that transcends borders. We have always believed in authentic stories and in Tanaav we find a narrative that will strike a chord with many. And with the master storyteller Sudhir Mishra and Applause Entertainment steering it, Tanaav is nothing short of cinematic spectacle.
