MX Player has announced their upcoming new series Pawan & Pooja, starring Mahesh Manjrekar, Deepti Naval, Sharman Joshi, Gul Panag, Taaruk Raina and Natasha Bharadwaj.
The web series will explore love and relationships from three different stages (and ages) in life.
Pawan & Pooja is created by the makers of popular Hindi films Saathiya, Bunty Aur Babli and Hichki. This includes Siddharth P Malhotra, Shaad Ali and Ajay Bhuyan.
The web series follows the lives of three couples who coincidentally share the same names (Pawan and Pooja).
However, the three couples come from three different generations. While Naval and Manjerkar play the oldest couple, followed by Panag and Joshi and Raina and Bharadwaj, who play the youngest of the lot.
Shaad Ali, who is known for his work in Bunty Aur Babli, OK Jaanu and Saathiya stated: “The stories and the situations are so real, these stories could be anybody’s. It’s a story about couples and love, but it will show you a very different aspect of it.”
“Every single character is superbly etched out, and each of the actors has just taken it to another level, it’s their show, really.”
Directorial collaborations are starting to gain popularity in the world of web entertainment ever since Netflix India released Lust Stories which was promptly followed by its sequel Ghost Stories.
The MX Original web series is all set to premiere on February 14, 2020. You can catch Manjrekar’s poster announcement for the show here:
