Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty has ruled the silver screen since the late 70s and is one of the most accomplished actors of all time. For more than a decade, he has also made appearances as a judge in various reality shows. Now, the actor has started a new chapter in his acting career as he has signed a web series. As per sources, it will premiere on Amazon Prime Video and his co-star is the popular Bollywood and South actress Shruti Haasan. This also marks Shrutiâ€™s first-ever web series.
A source revealed, â€œMithun Chakraborty had got several acting offers on the web in the past. But when the makers of this web series in question approached him, he couldnâ€™t say no. He was impressed with the script and found his eccentric character intriguing. Hence, he readily came on board.â€
As for Shruti Haasan, the source added, â€œThe web series centres around her character. She realized that itâ€˜d go a long way in aiding her acting career. She plays the character of a mysterious woman and she was excited to bag the series.â€
A source said, â€œThe shooting is completed and the series was filmed in places like Mumbai, Mussoorie etc. Mukul Abhyankar, who directed the Manoj Bajpayee-Tabu starrerÂ MissingÂ (2018) has helmed the series while Siddharth P Malhotra ofÂ HichkiÂ (2018) fame is the producer. Arjan Bajwa, Gauahar Khan and Satyajeet Dubey also feature in the series.â€
