This evening, Viu launched their newest web series on the Viu network, Kaushiki, starring some of the most interesting talents in India, like Sayani Gupta, Rannvijay Singh and others.
The event took place at a suburban premier hotel and this time. It was interesting to see an equal mix of influencers, new and traditional media covering the event.
The evening started with the trailer and rushes of the series, which promises to be an engaging thriller. It is good to see Sayami experimenting with newer roles and interesting characters so early in her career. It would be fair to say that the rushes and the trailer has invoked our interest and we’re looking forward to watch this.
Viu is offering this series for free on their streaming platform. At the event, the camaraderie of the lead stars was evident, who were quite excited about the series.
Rannvijay Singh who plays the role of a cop in Kaushiki, said, “It feels great to be associated with a series such as Kaushiki. When I was offered Kaushiki, I just had to go ahead with the role since I felt that everything was perfect, from the script to the cast to my role. The entire team has put in a lot of effort in this series and I hope the audience love the show.”
Sayani Gupta who plays the role of the protagonist, said, “”The script of Kaushiki really excited me as it gave me a chance to innovate with the set of roles I like to essay. The series has a great ensemble and it was great fun shooting with all of them. The trailer is out and I am really looking forward to its launch. Hope people enjoy watching me in as Kaushiki as much as I enjoyed enacting it.”
Namit Das, who plays an interesting role in the series, said “Some stories are so impeccable that you just can’t say a no, and Kaushiki was one of them. Without reading the script, I happily said a Yes because the gist of the story itself was so riveting. I have enjoyed every moment of shoot schedule for this series and I hope the audience love our performance in it as well.”
Commenting on being a part of Kaushiki, actor Omkar Kapoor,said ”Kaushiki is an exceptionally amazing script and Ankush’s character was a great role to play as he has hidden secrets like the others as well.. Right from the direction to the selection of actors, everything was just apt. I am sure the viewers will be in for a treat with Kaushiki, as it promises to engage the masses with its spellbinding and twisted storyline.”
Commenting on directing the most-anticipated series of the season, director Suparn Verma commented, “Kaushiki is like a homecoming for me with the thriller genre I enjoy so much, the show is filled with grey characters and murky morality and secrets and lies all woven around a mystery. We have a great ensemble of actors each bringing their unique flavour to the characters. I’m very pleased with my association with Viu who have a great team which has been hugely appreciative and supportive of the show.”
The series launches on the Viu network on the April 27.
