Director of ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Ishqiya’ franchise called Abhishek Chaubey is now coming with a new web series. Udta Punjab came out in 2016 and got a fabulous response from the people though it did not convert into box office collections and since than Abhishek was nowhere to be seen. He is now arriving with a crime thriller series called ‘Dus Assi’, which is based upon the real incidents that happened in West UP. Chaubey is not the one to mince visuals as he is pretty hardcore with his vision and the web platform would lift up the censorship to make it more brutal.
Many big directors have shifted to web platform in this country as the films come with a lot of restrictions. Kabir Khan is also making a web series for Amazon Prime which is based upon the forgotten army of Subhash Chandra Bose. Ram Madhvani has been working on the project with Prime though the details of that is not finalized at all. Vikram Aditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap’s joint directorial ‘Scared Games’ will be out on Netflix in a few days as it stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddique in lead roles.
Chaubey has not started the shoot on the series as of yet and the release date will be sometime in 2019. Star Cast is not revealed yet but apparently a lot of local actors from West UP are being considered for important roles to make a sense of authenticity. Chaubey likes to keep his films in a realistic zone yet entertaining and such was the case with ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ as well. Chaubey would not compromise on his vision but not bore the audience with any pseudo sensibilities. Chaubey will start the principal photography on the project very soon to release it on a respected digital platform.
