Tanuj Virwani reveals what it’s like to step in the shoes of a gangster

We have a fairly fragmented view when it comes to the world of gangsters. What we see is power, influence, money, connections and their ‘got nothing to lose’ attitude. But there is always more than meets the eye and one still can’t comprehend the magnitude of how terrifying this dark world can be. Tanuj Virwani, who plays the role of Major Bhau in MX Player and ALTBalaji’s Cartel, gives us an insight into what it feels like to be a part of the notorious and powerful Angre Family.

Speaking about the same, Tanuj Virwani says, “When I act, I allow myself to be vulnerable and truly immerse myself as I step into the shoes of the character. I realised being a gangster is not easy at all, you are constantly on the edge, worried about getting caught or about who will turn their back on you next. Most importantly, your family is constantly under the radar regardless of whether they are involved or not. I can’t imagine living in a world where I can trust almost no one. Behind all the power, there is a lot of fear. All gangsters live a complicated life and we have tried our best to portray these nuances through the Angre family’s universe.”

 Cartel is a story of revenge and power with its core set in family. Set-in present-day Mumbai, the show follows 5 gangs who go up in arms to become the most powerful ruler of this city. The most influential of them, The Angre family, is suddenly facing a crisis when the head of the family, Rani Maai, is shot. With cracks forming within the family and scrambling to rule as the cartel head in her stead, her 3 sons – Abhay, Major Bhau and Madhu Bhau (essayed by Rithvik Dhanjani, Tanuj Virwani and Jitendra Joshi respectively) are out to seek vengeance for the attack and the other 4 gang leaders also decide to make a play for power and own the city of Mumbai.

With a stellar cast including Supriya Pathak, Rithvik Dhanjani, Jitendra Joshi, Monica Dogra and Samir Soni among others, this series takes you on a thrilling journey of crime, drama and sin.
