Amazon Original‘s upcoming web series not only tells a story with strong female protagonists, but it is also helmed by some of the finest female talents behind the camera. Tanuja Chandra known for her work in Qarib Qarib Singlle, Dushman, Sangharsh will serve as the Creative Director & Executive Producer and Shikhaa Sharma known for Shakuntala Devi, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Sherni will double-hat as Executive Producer and original story writer. Kopal Nathani, one of the most promising names in the advertising films industry turns director for the show. National Award-winning writer Juhi Chaturvedi (Gulabo Sitabo and Piku), has been roped in to pen the dialogues for the series written by Ashish Mehta. The series will be produced by Vikram Malhotra’s Abundantia Entertainment. The web series is tentatively titled, Hush Hush.
Hush Hush (working title) marks the digital debut of Juhi Chawla as well as that of Ayesha Jhulka with leading ladies Soha Ali Khan, Karishma Tanna, Shahana Goswami and Kritika Kamra playing pivotal roles in this exciting thriller-drama. With a unique female gaze at its core, Hush Hush propels forward the movement of women telling their own stories. Hush Hush features an almost all-female crew, right from the Production Designer, Costume Designer, Supervising Producer, Co-producers, to Art, Costume, Production Coordination to even the Security Team!
Video streaming in India has brought about a significant change in storytelling by pushing female narratives to the fore and I couldn’t be more pleased! It’s what directors like me have waited for. Amazon Prime Video and Abundantia Entertainment, both have been bringing diverse and authentic women’s stories to audiences in India and abroad for a while now and I’m thrilled to join forces with them for Hush Hush to create something with this wonderful team that I hope will be truly special.
We can’t wait to know more about this project.
