Digital debuts for Bollywood actors have become a recurring affair these days and Arshad Warsi too had jumped on the train almost two years ago with Voot’s original web series Asur Welcome to Your Dark Side.
However, the much awaited show disappeared into thin air after being announced towards the end of 2018. There was no information revealed to the audience thereafter.
The cause for delay is still not known but there is good news for audience who have been waiting for the web series to drop. Asur has finally premiered on Viacom18’s streaming platform, Voot, and Warsi’s OTT debut is complete.
Set in Banaras, The web series is a psychological crime drama focused on ruthless murders by a serial killer. Inspector Dhananjay Rajpoot (Warsi) and forensic expert Nikhil Nair (Barun Sobti) are tasked with solving the case and bringing the murderer to justice.
Talking about the web series, Warsi said:
Asur also stars Anupriya Goenka, Ridhi Dogra, Sharib Hashmi and Gaurav Arora among others. It has been produced by Tanveer Bookwala’s Ding Entertainment.
Warsi has revealed that he’s also working on an unnamed Amazon Prime Video web series, which he described as being “bizarre on another level”.
