After delivering some really top-notch content with fiction web series like ‘I Don’t Watch TV’ and ‘A.I.SHA My Virtual Girlfriend,’ Arre is now all set to release its new show – Official Chukyagiri – about a young intern’s journey into the big, bad corporate world.
Spandan Chukya is a small-town boy who lands up in Mumbai with dreams in his eyes, only to realise that “…yahan jagah milti nahi, banani padti hai.”
Talking about the upcoming, 5-episode web series, producer/ actor Anand Tiwari tells Tubescoop: “This is a show about an intern, and we see the corporate world from his eyes– like the ideals that he comes with after doing his MBA, and the real world out there and all the learnings that he has from his books and his teachers, and how the big bad world is so different.”
He adds, “It is set inside a digital house, where he comes to work, where he really aspires to work at. The office is called Analog The Digital People. And it’s really all the motley of actors and characters that he happens to meet, because of his job, how his interactions with them really makes him what he becomes– that’s basically the world of the show in its first season.”
A trailer (below) for the series was released today (22 August) and it features several recognizable faces from the world of Indian web series, including Sumeet Vyas from Permanent Roommates! When asked if Sumeet has a full-fledged role or a guest appearance of sorts in Chukyagiri, Anand teased, “Watch the show to find out.”
Starring Sunny Kaushal, Mithila Palkar, Anand Tiwari, Gopal Datt, Aahana Kumra, Shikha Talsania and Sumeet Vyas, Official Chukyagiri kicks off on September 7 with its first episode which will release on Arre’s YouTube channel.
