Lionsgate Play’s first Indian original series is a remake of Casual, the critically-acclaimed American comedy-drama that ran for four seasons on Hulu (and is available on Amazon Prime Video in India). The Indian remake of Casual will have Lara Dutta and Prateik Babbar in lead roles.
Lara Dutta and Prateik Babbar will play siblings, a newly-divorced single mother and her younger once-entrepreneurial brother, respectively, who decide to live together after her divorce and help raise her teenage daughter.
The story is about how they raise a teenage daughter together and support each other through the crazy world of dating. The series set in Mumbai is said to have been beautifully adapted to suit the Indian sensibilities.
The show is tentatively titled as Project 23. It is directed by Filmmaker Kunal Kohli and backed by Jar Pictures.
