Think about this, there has been no political comedy in India since ever. Let that sink in, and then we tell you about PM Selfiewallie, a political comedy that will stream soon on the ALTBalaji streaming website. The trailer is atrocious, hilarious and promises a show that tackles several burning issues in real life, with the right amount of diva humor. The show features Nityami Shirke, Sayed Raza and Beena, among others.
ALTBalaji is a trendsetter now, with this being their third women-centric web series concentrating on the their protagonist’s professional career. Nimrat Kaur was an army officer in The Test Case, Mona Singh was an interior designer in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain and now, we have a female character who could be India’s Prime Minister.
What’s also interesting is that at least in the trailer, the series immediately tackles political hot potatoes like legalization of homosexuality, legalizing marijuana, etc. In the era of hyper nationalism and flawed patriotism, ALTBalaji’s youth-oriented web series might just be the eye opener political leaders need.
