In an exclusive interview with PeepingMoon, Sandhya Mridul opened up about her web show Tandav, the fear of getting lost in a multi-starrer, working with ‘actor’s director’ Ali Abbas Zafar and if the Amazon Prime show will stir the hornet’s nest in the current political scenario!
When asked if she was ever hesitant to be a part of being cast in a multi starrer and if she had the fear of getting lost in the crowd, Sandhya confidently said, "I was meant to play the role Sandhya. If I was not convinced with my part, I wouldn't have taken it up. I don’t look at Tandav as a multi-starrer, I look at it as a multi-casting. The line between stars and actors is merging and I hope it keeps on merging because I want to be an actor, not a star."
