Richa Chadha, Pratik Gandhi starrer web series by Tigmanshu Dhulia is an adaptation of author Vikas Swarup’s 2008 novel Six Suspects. Earlier the series was titled the same as the novel but now the makers have renamed it to The Great Indian Murder. The mystery drama stars Pratik Gandhi, Richa Chadha, Ashutosh Rana, Sharib Hashmi, Raghubir Yadav and Shashank Arora in the lead roles and it is all set to premiere this year on Disney Plus Hotstar. The series has been produced by Ajay Devgn Films and Reel Life Entertainment.
Earlier in an interview, Richa Chadha had opened about her role in the series. The actress said “My part in Six Suspects is extremely layered and complex. She is an upright investigating officer who is trying to make it work in the male dominated investigation space… I have wanted to work with Tigmanshu Dhulia for a while, since Paan Singh Tomar. This is also based on a good book. So you will see a lot of shades in my character.”
“I am blessed to find these amazing characters on OTT. Films have the pressure of box office, but here content rules supreme and we get to discover hidden gems like Pratik. I am really happy we are working together. The kind of stories you can’t imagine in cinema, we are able to share such narratives on OTT. It is a great time for talent,” she said.
Co-star Pratik Gandhi also expressed his view on his upcoming project “The genre is also something that I have not explored. I am sure the audience will see me in a new avatar. Even I was surprised with myself while I was shooting for the show because I have not played a part like this.”
