Manisha Koirala made her streaming debut with Lust Stories, the Netflix Original anthology., And looks like she’s really liked her streaming outing. There’s buzz that she will now be part of an Applause Entertainment web series. The series is the Indian adaptation of Eyewitness, a series in which two homosexual boys fall into trouble after they witness a homicide.
There’s no confirmation about the same from Manisha’s side, and it is unclear which role she will play – if she gives the nod. In the original series, a female sheriff investigates the case, someone who was a detective before her marriage. It should be noted that the character was not a private detective, but a homicide detective with the police authorities. So, the nuances of the series will not be Manisha playing a private detective but someone within the police force. The original series was based on a Norwegian series, Oyevitne, and won awards at the 28th GLAAD Media Awards.
If this does happen, Manisha Koirala becomes the next A Lister to star in multiple web series. Earlier, actresses like Radhika Apte, Mona Singh, Karishma Sharma, Surveen Chawla and others have made this successful evolution from mainstream films to streaming.
