Raj Thackeray launches trailer of Marathi web series `Athang`

Published

on



‘Athang’, Planet Marathi OTT’s soon-to-be-released, thriller web series trailer was released with great fanfare with an exclusive event. The special guest of the event to launch the most awaited trailer was Shri Raj Thackeray along with the star cast of the series.

Commenting on the launch of Athang’s trailer, Shri Raj Thackeray said, “We must celebrate the culture, arts and cinema of our state Maharashtra with much pride. It is great that we are able to give tough competition in the web world in the current generation with great stories from our state’s talent. I applaud the team for their great work.”

The trailer is an intriguing glimpse into a foreboding period drama with layered and diabolical characters. The dialogues are sharp and spine-chilling, as each actor steps into the shoes of edgy, unnerved roles which add to the disturbing cinematic aura. Viewers will be drawn to the rustic, old world of ‘waadaas’ and secrets unknown.

National award winner Akshay Bardapurkar, Producer and Founder, of Planet Marathi OTT said “Athang’s dark universe will usher in a new era of Marathi web content. It is an experimental format in the thriller and mystery genre which is less explored in our industry, especially on web. Series like this are meant to create a breakthrough with larger audiences.”

The eerily mysterious plot revolves around the captivating story of a man living under the deathly shadow of a soul trapped. In a less explored genre of Marathi web content, the series takes a brave leap into the suspense space. The series sees a stellar cast including names like Dhairya Gholap, Bhagyashree Milind, Sandeep Khare, Nivedita Ashok Saraf, and Urmila Kanetkar Kothare among others.

Popular actress, Bhagyashree Milind who plays a key role in the series said “Viewers will get a taste of the enigmatic world of Athang through its trailer. As an actor, it was a new journey as web content is shot differently. I thoroughly enjoyed every scene even though it was emotionally challenging. It has come together fantastically.”

Noted Actress and Producer Tejaswini Pandit commented “We are living in an exciting time where we get a chance to back fresh, enthralling stories like Athang. The trailer itself showcases the prowess of Marathi web’s when it comes to giving differentiated content.”

The web series has been directed by Jayant Pawar and produced by Tejaswini Pandit and Santosh Kher. The series will launch on 25th November exclusively on the platform.

Actor Randeep Hooda, who is known for lending authenticity to his roles be it in `Sarbjit` or `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster`, is currently gearing up for his next streaming series titled `CAT`. The series, according to its creator and showrunner Balwinder Singh Janjua, has been entirely shot in real locations in Punjab. Randeep says shooting in real locations “immensely” helps actors to make their performance believable.

Elaborating on the same, the actor tells IANS: “Shooting in real locations enhances the performance because you spend the majority of time in the universe where your content is set. “Going to sets for the shoot, being there in the moment or coming back from the shoot, you are surrounded by a certain geography, the climate, the cultural setting of the people, the local language or the diction people use there — all these things help you to get into a space and focus your thoughts inline with the traits of your character.”

`Cat` is a crime thriller set against the backdrop of the Punjab hinterlands and tells the story of an innocent man, who is thrown into a deep, drug trafficking conspiracy between gang lords, cops and political powers. The actor further adds, “Like for `Cat` too, a lot of local actors have been cast in supporting roles. It`s so interesting to jam with those actors on the screen and to feed off their energy. It greatly helped me to get a better understanding of my character in the series.”

`Cat` lands on Netflix on December 9.

Despite the acclaim that he has received for his acting stints in shows like Pataal Lok and Bard of Blood, Jaideep Ahlawat, like any other cinephile, recalls being apprehensive about his first interaction with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Given that Kapoor is “such a big star”, he set foot on the sets of The Devotion of Suspects X adaptation with the belief that building a bond with her would require a fair share of effort. “She ended the sense of awkwardness within five minutes,” recalls the actor, stating that Kapoor would encourage him to read lines with her to break the ice, while working on Sujoy Ghosh’s directorial venture.

The yet-untitled Netflix film, which marks Kapoor’s streaming debut, is an adaptation of Japanese author Higashino Keigo’s bestselling 2005 novel, and follows Kapoor as a single mother, who, along with her daughter, commits a crime.

Kapoor’s dedication to her craft, he says, is evident in the questions that she asks her directors. “She is committed, and would come prepared with her lines. She would ask [Sujoy] why certain dialogues were being included in the script. She would voice her suggestions if she felt that she could emote certain scenes better in the absence of dialogues. She is an actor who constantly thinks about her character.”
