‘Airlift’ and ‘Chef’ director to make digital debut with Netflix series

Raja Krishnan Menon – the director of the popular Bollywood movie Airlift will make his debut in the digital space with a dark comedy on Netflix.

According to the creators, the production was supposed to start from May 1 but has been put on halt due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.

In an interview, the Airlift director revealed:

The series is a dark comedy. I did a film titled Barah Aana in 2009, which was also a dark-comedy, I like this space. Our story is different, it is funny and has little uncomfortable humour. It is completely different from what we have seen so far.

The film will be set in a startup world in Bengaluru. It will revolve around three young engineering students and will explore their bromance.

Menon shared that unless a vaccine is discovered for the virus, they will not be able to start shooting this year.

Menon also shared details about his other projects:

There are two scripts that we are writing and researching. For the web series, the costume and production design is happening. We are having conversations with actors, discussing and creating a background for characters, spending time on character building, etc. We are trying to do as much work as possible before we go on floors.
