Lionsgate Play has finally released the first teaser ‘Hiccups and Hookups’. The ultra-modern show, featuring Lara Dutta Bhupathi, Prateik Babbar, and Shinnova is based on an unusual family breaking stereotypes and redefining the idea of family.
The teaser introduces Lara Dutta as Vasudha Rao, who depicts a character of a ‘modern stri’ who is confused about her dating options. Prateik, who plays the role of her brother Akhil Rao, is introduced as the guy who “believes in connecting people in bed than for marriage”. Shinnova will be seen playing the teenage daughter of Lara in the show.
Talking about this, director Kunal Kohli said, “We have these ideas of perfect families and norms like these are discussions to avoid with parents. Here’s a series about modern-day relationships and how layered and complicated they are. The series showcases family members who talk about everything under the sun – from breakfasts to sexual encounters. I would call it an honest depiction of a modern-day family and frankly, a lot of modern-day families are capable of hosting honest discussions about the most intimate details of their lives.”
