Netflix India has announced its upcoming projects is a comical heist series ‘Choona’. The series will star Jimmy Sheirgill, Namit Das, and Monika Panwar in titular roles.
The show will revolve around an unlikely group of people who come together to fight a person who has wronged them all. Their attempt to take down the corrupt goon turns into a hilarious series of events.
Helmed by Pushpendra Nath Misra, the cast also includes Aashim Gulati, Vikram Kochhar, Gyanendra Tripathi, Chandan Roy, Atul Srivastava and Niharika Lyra Dutt.
In reference to the title of the series, Pushpendra Nath Misra said, “What comes to your mind when you hear the word Choona? For me, it is the quintessentially Indian flavour of ‘choona lagaana’ (deceive someone).”
“The excitement of discovering who deceived whom and how they did it is incomparable, especially when it’s the weak pitted against the powerful. There’s no synonym that can do justice to this feeling. Since we are all about the drama and rooting for the underdogs,” the director added.
