Ali Fazal and Shriya Pilgaonkar, who received a lot of praises for their performance in Amazon Prime Video’s Mirzapur, have teamed up once again. Both the actors have been roped in to play pivotal characters in an upcoming web-series.
Titled House Arrest, the web-series has been commissioned by Netflix. The project has already started rolling. Reportedly, it was Veere Di Wedding (2018) director Shashanka Ghosh, who got Ali and Shriya together. The series is helmed by Samit Basu.
House Arrest is a situational comedy of sorts. Ali and Shriya were recently in Delhi shooting for the first schedule of the series. Ali says that he is looking forward to seeing the audiences’ reaction to his collaboration with his Mirzapur co-star.
Talking about the series, he says, “House Arrest is a fantastic script. It is witty, very fresh and, for me, selfishly the character is very, very arched and layered. So, it was a fun time on sets to play this part. Even though it’s a comedy, it is complex and I got to go on set every day and do something new and fresh even though it was all one place.”
Ali Fazal goes on to add that working with Shriya Pilgaonkar is always fun. “Working with Shriya is always fun and working the second time with her was a natural comfort that just came without trying.”
The premiere date of the series is yet to be announced.
