Story highlights

Pataudi Palace is Saif Ali Khan’s ancestral home and he rarely allows makers to film in his palatial home.

Saif Ali Khan’s latest offering ‘Tandav’ on Amazon Prime has more on offer from the star than just his acting, The web show is filmed in Pataudi Palace.

Pataudi Palace is Saif Ali Khan’s ancestral home and he rarely allows makers to film in his palatial home. Talking about it, Saif said, “I don’t mind giving it for shoots sometimes because it remains unused 340 days of the year. These days, film crews have become responsible and look after the venues, but [the idea of a shoot] still makes me nervous. Usually, I am more comfortable if they are filming around the exterior of the palace. But for Tandav, I made an exception [by shooting inside]."

He further added, "I think it is the palace that lends us the royal look. Anyone standing there would look royal." Check out the first look posters of Tandav here.
