"My series is about in humour," says writer-director Raaj Shaandilyaa, whose previous film Dream Girl, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, tackled problems with gender fluidity albeit with a scoop of comedy. Initially, Shaandilyaa was set to develop another rib-tickler for 2020, but the author has now shifted gears. he's now scripting a series set round the lockdown. He says, "Tentatively titled Lockdown series, it's a mix of humour, action and romance."
Shaandilyaa explains that the story narrates a strong message with a touch of humour. "Comedy comes out of emotions. My show isn't a comedy, it's a humourous premise and there's a difference between the 2 . When people reminisce at this point , they're going to come to terms with how they survived the pandemic."
Still at a nascent stage, Shaandilyaa will start casting for the project post the lockdown. "My characters are supported what i'm reading and listening. The series will capture the stories of daily-wage workers, migrants, cops and alcoholics."
