A comedy about two desi dudes inheriting a sex toy shop – now isn’t that the perfect premise for a ‘skintillating’ web series? Well, Bollywood producer Ashvini Yardi (Singh Is Bliing, Fugly) definitely seems to think so.
Her upcoming project, Boys With Toys, was initially conceptualised as a film with Riteish Deshmukh in mind. However, it is now being made into a web series with Shaadi Boys actor Rishab Chadda in the lead.
What’s ‘Boys With Toys’ About
The show centres around two brothers struggling to survive in Mumbai when they inherit a shop and all its contents, from their London-based uncle. The duo cough up a lot of money to get the inventory from the shop, only to realise it’s not antiques or jewellery, but sex toys.
A source associated with the project revealed to Mumbai Mirror, “The film was to be made with Riteish Deshmukh in the lead but the makers realised the premise was too risqué for the big screen. It has now been turned into a light-hearted show that will run in the seasons format. Over 15 episodes have already been shot.”
Boys With Toys will premiere on the Hungama digital platform. The release date for the web series is yet to be revealed. But with 15 episodes already shot, you can expect the series to be out by December this year, if not sooner. Be ready for a lot of puns and double meaning jokes in this one!
