The ultimate tale of power and vengeance drops on ZEE5 today! The new ZEE5 original titled Poison, stars Arbaaz Khan, Riya Sen, Freddy Daruwala and Tanuj Virwani. Greed, love, lust, and revenge dominate the narrative of the web series. In an exclusive conversation with us, Tanuj spoke his role in Poison and experience of shooting with the star cast. It was very demanding and challenging he mentioned.
Speaking about his role, Tanuj told us, “I am playing the character of Ranveer Shrivastav. He is a simple, every day who was wrongly imprisoned for crimes that he did not commit. And a few years later when he is out, he is out there to seek revenge on those who have wronged him. That’s what his journey is about. He is a man with a plan and he is out there to right whatever wrongs were done to him and his family.”
About his shooting experience, Tanuj says, “It has been a fabulous experience, very very challenging, very very demanding. We have shot a lot in a short period of time. We actually started shooting in the month of February and here we are in April and we are ready to release the show. So since we are chronicling the journey of this guy, who went to prison and now he is out and he is doing all these things. He is never fully himself. He is not vulnerable. He is devoid of a lot of emotions because life and his term in prison made him that way. For me to play a character like that so early on in my career definitely gave me a lot of satisfaction. It was really demanding, it has taken a lot out of me emotionally as well. But hopefully, the results will be there for all to see on the screen.”
