Mumbai, 28 Jan: Actors Mithun Chakraborty, Shruti Haasan, Arjan Bajwa, Gauahar Khan, Satyajeet Dubey, Sonalee Kulkarni and Satish Sharma will be starring in an eight-episode psychological thriller ‘Bestseller’.
This will stream from 18 February on Prime Video as an Amazon Original series.
It has been produced by Siddharth Malhotra’s Alchemy Production LLP and directed by Mukul Abhyankar.
“At Prime Video, our endeavour has been to provide a platform to diverse cinematic voices and bring compelling, engaging and differentiated content to our customers,” said Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals at Amazon Prime Video, India.
“Our latest Amazon Original Series, Bestseller, is a fast-paced, gritty psychological thriller that will pull viewers deep into a vortex of flawed human nature and leave them hooked. It’s a complex world where nothing is quite as it seems, and the story gets darker.”
Siddharth Malhotra, Founder & CEO of Alchemy Production LLP added: “For me, ‘Bestseller’ has not been a project but a dream that I have envisaged for over the last several years. I have had endless brainstorming sessions with my team nurturing, shaping and transforming this riveting story into a series that I believe will redefine ‘psychological thriller’ as a genre.
“Mukul Abhyankar, the director, has tied the story together in an incredible way and the highly talented and versatile cast has breathed life into the script.” (IANS).
Doon’s Satish Sharma plays a professor in the series. “I am lucky to have bagged a role in this Mukul Abhyankar directorial venture. He came all the way to Kanatal to capture its beauty that he had filmed almost a decade ago in one of his films. I share space with the iconic Mithun Chakraborty and I am super thrilled about this thriller.”
