Anushka Sharma established her production house Clean Slate Films along with her brother Karnesh Sharma in 2014. She went on to produce movies like NH10, Phillauri and Pari under her production banner. Now, the actress will be making her debut as a producer in the digital platform as well with Paatal Lok. A few days ago, she shared the first teaser of her production venture. Today, she has unveiled the title and release date of the series.
The thriller drama, Paatal Lok, will start streaming from May 15 on Amazon Prime Video. The teaser of the series complemented with a disquiet narration hints on the evil and destructive side of humanity. By the looks of it, it seems like the show seeks to explore immortality and other sinister and dark themes. And just like the first teaser that Anushka had shared before, the makers have refrained from introducing the characters.

From the underbelly comes a crime thriller that will change how you look at the world you live in. #PaatalLok #NewSeriesOnPrime, May 15 @primevideoin @officialcsfilms @kans26 #SudipSharma @manojmittra @saurabhma @prositroy @avinasharun24fps @jaideepahlawat #NeerajKabi @gulpanag @swastikamukherjee13 @nowitsabhi
The official synopsis of the Paatal Lok reads — “Filled with mystique, thrill and drama, Amazon Prime Video’s latest Original explores the dark bylanes of immorality. Inspired by the ancient realms of Swargalok (heaven), Dharti Lok (earth), and Patal Lok (netherworld), the neo-noir series delves into the interplay within the four estates of democracy.”
The series has been helmed by NH10 and Udta Punjab writer Sudip Sharma and stars Neeraj Kabi, Gul Panag and Jaideep Ahlawat in the lead roles.
On the acting front, Anushka was last seen in the film Zero which also featured Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. The actress will be seen next portraying the former captain of the Indian national women’s cricket team, Jhulan Goswami, in her biopic. The movie is being directed by Prosit Roy.
