After ‘Gully Boy’, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti come up with web series ‘Made In Heaven’
‘Gully Boy’ is working wonders at the box-office. Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti are on a high after their film has hit the right chord with the audiences. Now, the two are back to create a web show, ‘Made In Heaven’. It is an immersive drama series reflecting the lives of upscale modern India, narrated through the eyes of two wedding planners, set against the backdrop of quintessential Indian weddings.
The trailer invites viewers to take a peek into the lives of Tara and Karan, two Delhi-based wedding planners. Their stories unfold over the course of an opulent wedding season. As tradition jostles with modern aspirations against the backdrop of big fat Indian weddings, many secrets and myriad lies are revealed. Check out the trailer right here:
Starring Arjun Mathur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Jim Sarbh, Kalki Koechlin, Shashank Arora and Shivani Raghuvanshi, ‘Made In Heaven’ is created by Zoya and Reema whereas it’s been directed by Zoya, Nitya Mehra, Alankrita Shrivastava and Prashant Nair.
Speaking about the series, Zoya said, “Creating ‘Made In Heaven’ has been a labour of love. Our (Reema and Zoya) objective with this project was to tell a story that was inherently entertaining but strong and deeply rooted in our society. Grand Indian weddings acted as just the right backdrop to examine the liberal fabric of educated, modern Indians and their dichotomous value systems that co-exist peacefully at times and at others come into conflict. The 9-episode series is the culmination of the creative vision of four directors – Nitya Mehra, Prashant Nair, Alankrita Srivastava and me (Zoya Akhtar).”
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into the drama that is waiting to unfold on Women’s Day, March 8.
