Amala Paul, who last starred in the Tamil thriller Aadai (Aame in Telugu,) is set to foray into the digital space and Bollywood as well. Veteran Bollywood director and producer Mahesh Bhatt will step into the digital arena with an untitled web series starring Amala Paul, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Amrita Puri.
The web series will be based on the relationship of a struggling filmmaker and a top actress of the ’70s. Amala Paul will play the role of the Bollywood actress. Mahesh Bhatt previously made a movie titled Woh Lamhe… in 2006, which was rumoured to be based on the life of Parveen Babi. Rumours are circulating that this series will also be supposedly based on Parveen Babi’s life.
Amala Paul took to Instagram and posted a picture of herself with the lead cast of this web series. The caption read, “And we roll! Excited to be a part of this journey with the perfect recipe for a dramatic love story set during the 70s Bollywood, what more could have I asked for my #Bollywood & digital debut (sic.)”
