This new Amazon Prime series has been causing waves, we got a chance to talk to the two main leads and co-showrunner and director Anand Tiwari…
DIRECTOR and co-show creator Anand Tiwari and upcoming stars Shreya Chaudhry and Ritwik Bhowmik talk about the making of the new Amazon Prime series, ‘Bandish Bandits’.
The young stars discuss their characters and let rip that they found each other very annoying – haha, watch the beginning…
They discuss the pressures and working alongside one of the great icons of Indian acting, Naseeruddin Shah.
Tiwari talks about what he wanted to do with the show having conceived it with Amritpal Singh Bindra, why he choose to centre it around the historic city of Jodhpur (also some of it was shot in Bikaner), all in Rajasthan – with folk music also playing a part.
As a website that covers Indian classical music and film, it was interesting to see the way the juxtapositions and conflicts are set up.
The series dropped on August 4 and has already garnered a huge amount of praise – watch this to see how the talent came together, the chemistry behind the two central leads and how they both see themselves and this series in the context of their careers…
