Hotstar Specials Brings ‘The Office’ to Indian Audience
Hotstar started its own video-on-demand service under the Hotstar Specials category. So far they have released 4 Specials, two adaptations- Criminal Justice and Hostages– and 2 originals- Roar of the Lion and City of Dreams. It’s all set to release another show, titled The Office, and yes it’s the adaptation of the popular US sitcom of the same name.
Directed by Rohan Sippy, Debbie Rao, and Bumpy aka Vivek Bhushan, Hotstar’s The Office features Jagdeep Chaddha, the boss of the Wilkins Chawla, a paper company based in Delhi. It stars Mukul Chadda, Gopal Dutt, Abhinav Sharma, Samridhi Dewan, Gauhar Khan, Sayandeep Sengupta, and Gavin N. Methalaka, among others. The office drama will revolve around the apparent no-nonsense boss and the employees of Wilkins.
The Office was originally a British show created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, aired on BBC. NBC adapted it later for US, and it went on to became one of the most popular and favored show on television. Let’s have our fingers crossed for how the Indian adaptation justifies the fan-favorite show.
Produced by Applause Entertainment, the release date for The Office is yet to be released. Stay tuned!
