Ekta Kapoor is leaving no stone unturned to prepare for her new web series Mangalyaan based on Mars Orbiter Mission to stream on ALTBalaji. Ekta visited Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in Bengaluru. The series’ director Nupur Asthana accompanied the scion.
The duo met senior officials at ISRO to get a hang of the technical aspects of the mission. Not just this, she also consulted key people for the script.
The series will highlight three female scientists – Seetha Somasundaram, Nandini Harinath and Minal Rohit – who were instrumental in making Mangalyaan a success.
This series will be the second venture for ALTBalaji, which is expected to be high on content. The platform’s most recent release Bose: Dead/Alive has been touted as a content-driven web series. Its lead actor Rajkummar Rao is being appreciated for his portrayal of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. You can read TheDigitalHash.com review for the web series here.
Overall, ALTBalaji is trying to make a shift towards more content-rich series rather than the adult content it is known for like Ragini MMS Returns.
