Mithun Chakraborty has had an illustrious career in Bollywood spanning over four decades and his contribution to the industry has been exceptional. Mithun Da has been the one who popularised disco in India in the ’80s. Even after decades of experience, the veteran actor is still finding new things to do and now, he is ready to take a new turn in his career on the OTT platform. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the actor has reportedly signed a web series with Shruti Haasan, who also marks her debut on OTT with this project.
A source revealed:
Mithun Chakraborty had got several acting offers on the web in the past. But when the makers of this web series in question approached him, he couldn’t say no. He was impressed with the script and found his eccentric character intriguing. Hence, he readily came on board.
The source further talked about Shruti’s character in the series:
The web series centres around her character. She realized that it‘d go a long way in aiding her acting career. She plays the character of a mysterious woman and she was excited to bag the series. The shooting is completed and the series was filmed in places like Mumbai, Mussoorie etc. Mukul Abhyankar, who directed the Manoj Bajpayee-Tabu starrer Missing has helmed the series while Siddharth P Malhotra of Hichki fame is the producer. Arjan Bajwa, Gauahar Khan and Satyajeet Dubey also feature in the series.
The title of the web series is not yet decided however, reportedly, the series is based on the novel ‘The Bestseller She Wrote’ by Ravi Subramanian. The makers have planned to release it in the first half of 2022.
Mithun Da has several projects lined up in the coming years, including The Kashmir Files, Bhootiyapa, and a cameo appearance in Bad Boy. On the other hand, Shruti will be working with KGF director Prashanth Neel in Salaar opposite Prabhas. Both these actors have proven their mettle in their craft and while one has more experience on their hand, the other has more young energy, so it will be an amazing experience to see both of them together and I am really eager to witness it.
