Well-known film and television actor Samir Soni, who was last seen on the big screen in his own directorial debut My Birthday Song (2018), has joined the cast of forthcoming digital series Cartel. To be produced by Ekta Kapoor for her OTT platform ALTBalaji, the series revolves around gangsters, greed and guns.
Apart from Samir Soni, the much-talked-about series, which was earlier called The Family Man, also features Vivek Oberoi, Ravi Kishan, Nikita Dutta, Kubra Sait and Sheeba Chaddha in prominent roles.
Talking about his character in the series, Soni informs, “My character in Cartel is easily the most sinister one that I’ve played in my life. I’m super excited that people will see me like they have never seen me before. It’s a great team together with Vivek and other people.”
The actor is happy with the fact that the series is being helmed by Pulkit who directed the critically acclaimed web-series Bose: Dead/Alive, starring National award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao as freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose.
“I have loved watching the show Bose: Dead/Alive and its director, Pulkit, happens to direct this series too. This is going to be my third show with ALTBalaji. Ekta Kapoor always brings out the best in me. And I’m really grateful to Ekta for casting me for this role.”
Before Cartel, Samir Soni has played pivotal parts in such digital shows as Bewafaa Sii Wafaa and Puncch Beat.
