I like how the OTT space never fails to amaze me with great content, but it is also thanks to filmmakers who bring such brilliant stories to us in this space. One such show I am obsessing about right now is Vikramaditya Motwane‘s Jubilee. The show’s trailer just dropped today and oh my god! Watching it just feels like looking at a perfectly made platter with things I love. Yes, a brilliant cast of Aditi Rao Hydari, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Aparshakti Khurana, Nandish Sandhu, Sidhant Gupta, Wamiqa Gabbi, and Ram Kapoor placed in a gripping storyline and all of it clubbed with beautiful music is a treat. Set in 1947 Bombay, I am loving the feel this trailer has.

Watch the Jubilee trailer here:

Jubilee is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, and created by Soumik Sen along with Motwane. The series is produced by Andolan Films in association with Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Studios and the show features a charming soundtrack composed by Amit Trivedi. Set in the Golden Era of Bollywood, Jubilee is a layered drama giving us a peek into the lives of a studio boss, his movie-star wife, a trusted aide, a rising star, a nautch girl, and a refugee, gambling with their lives in order to fulfill their dreams, passion, ambition, and love.

Talking about Jubilee, Aditi Rao Hydari shares…

Sumitra Kumari has been an incredibly challenging and layered character to play. She is a star, she is powerful and has the world at her feet except for that one thing that she really wants, it’s what makes her vulnerable, and eventually becomes her north star. Vikramaditya Motwane is such an amazing and sensitive director and he is completely an actor’s director.

Prosenjit Chatterjee adds,

When Vikram first came to me with the story, I instantly connected with the character of Srikant Roy. He is a person who lives and breathes cinema and has dedicated his life to it. As someone who has worked in the industry for four decades, I could immediately relate to that! Jubilee represents a glorious time of Indian Cinema, and as an actor I in a manner of speaking feel responsible for doing right by it. I don’t think there could’ve been a better series for me to make my OTT debut with!

Aparshakti Khurana said…

Jubilee for me as an actor was a complete no-brainer. When I heard the story, and especially Binod’s journey, I knew I had to do this. It is one of the most challenging characters I have played to date, but also the most rewarding. Vikramaditya Motwane is a maverick, he has been able to bring out the best in not just me, but the entire cast and crew.

Jubliee premieres on Amazon Prime Video in two parts, the first five episodes will be released on 7th April and the other five will drop in on the 14th of April. Now, after watching this spectacular trailer I am very thrilled to see this story unfold soon.
