Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, who is known for his on-screen versatility and stellar performances, is all set to enthrall the audience with his power-packed act in his upcoming web series, Tandav. He is someone who always chooses to speak on the political matter of the country, especially when most of the industry chooses to be a mute spectator.

Now, he is a part of a political web show, Tandav, wherein he will be seen playing the role of a revolutionary who's not okay with the system. In real life too, Ayyub voices his opinions without any fear. Not every actor wants to speak about the political scenario and it's noticed that actors steer clear away from politics.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Ayyub was asked the reason behind actors staying mum on many issues. To which he responded, "I would say that there is a fear among the makers as there's a lot of money involved in the movies so if there's any backlash on our statements, it might create a problem. I do understand that aspect but I don't agree with it as I am always active on social media. This is a misconception that an artist should only focus on just art. This is a rigid mindset and I would want to say that art is no different as it's inspired from the realities around us and it's difficult for an artist to completely cut off from the society around him."

He went on to add that the youth needs to speak up if they want a change and he further stated that it's the ignorance that we have when it comes to politics that has resulted in these many problems.

"I would want to quote Bertolt Brecht as he said that the worst illiterate is a political illiterate because that imbecile doesn't understand that the corrupt politicians, rising pricing of cereals, and all other problems are happening because of the lack of their interest in politics. They start taking pride in their ignorance and that's what breaks a nation. When you talk about India, students need to have an interest in politics as they are free of other burdens. These students need to raise their voices for the future they want," added the actor.
