ZEE5 comes up with ‘AKOORI’
ZEE5 is all set to come out with some interesting shows. They are working on an upcoming web series titled ‘Akoori’. The new web series will be produced by Essel Vision Productions. The working cast includes Zoa Morani (Bhaag Johnny), Shadab Kamal (B.A. Pass), Adi Irani (Baazigar), Darshan Jariwala (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani), Lillete Dubey (Chashme Baddoor) and Tirthankar Poddar.
Morani started off as an assistant director for the 2007 film Om Shanti Om and was assistant director for Halla Bol (2008) as well. Apparently, though Morani had no interest in directing films, she took up these roles to wrap herself with acting. Shadab Kamal known for his roles in Har Har Byomkesh, Chittagong, B.A. Pass, is to be starred into this web series too. Amongst these talented stars, there is yet another actor – Darshan Jariwala who is a TV, theatre and now a digital space actor.
He won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for ‘Gandhi, My Father’. The series also includes cast like Lillete Dubey an Indian actress who has worked in theatre, television and hindi films; and Tirthankar Poddar who hosted the show ‘Off The Record with 2Blue’ to bring attention to unsigned musicians who are worth every bit. A combination of such talented and versatile cast will definitely bring glow to the show.
The series will see a story revolving around the Parsi community. No revert from its actors as of now. Zee5 is stepping on a paved way of interesting web series and serving its audience the best they can. ‘Akoori’ as the name suggests is going to be an interesting web series in recent collections to add.
Let us look forward for more details of the cast and release of ‘AKOORI’
