ALTBalaji is becoming the biggest platform for streaming content in India. ALTBalaji is working towards creating and acquiring regional content. The digital streaming platform is investing in making a web series in Bengali. Dhimaner Dinkal will star Saswata Chaterjee and Sreelekha Mitra. Saswata catapulted to fame after he played Bob Biswas in the Bollywood thriller film Kahaani. Sreelekha Mitra was in Bhooter Bhobhishyot, Hello Kolata, Tolly Lights Debdoot and others.
Saswata plays someone who hasn’t used technology. He has no other option but to buy a mobile phone. Sreelekha plays his technically adept wife. Anindya Sarkar directs what promises to be a light hearted take on the question of whether technology is taking over our lives. It will start streaming from 30th July this year.
ALTBalaji is grabbing headlines in the streaming genre since a while now. In April, it released a bouquet of web series, the biggest being ‘The Test Case’ starring Nimrat Kaur, Rahul Dev, Juhi Chawla and others.
This is not the first regional web series that ALTBalaji is banking on. It earlier launched the supernatural web series ‘Maya Thirrai’, that was well received by the audiences.
