Leading Indian studio Yash Raj Films’ streaming production arm YRF Entertainment has revealed its second show. Titled ‘Mandala Murders,’ the multi-season series is billed as a gritty crime thriller. It is created and will be directed by Gopi Puthran (director of Mardaani 2).
The edge-of-the-seat entertainer will star Vaani Kapoor as the lead, with Vaibhav Raj Gupta co-starring. He has been cast as the leading man for the first time after his brilliant performance in Gullak. Manan Rawat, who has worked on several films as an associate director for the studio, will serve as co-director.
Gopi will shoot Mandala Murders for about a month in Uttar Pradesh starting tomorrow, before heading to Delhi & then Mumbai to finish the filming process. In UP, the team will shoot in the picturesque Prayagraj, Lucknow & Varanasi.
The big-budget show will thus boast a huge canvas and a grand scale with it being shot across 5 different cities in India! Surveen Chawla and Jameel Khan (again of Gullak fame) have also been cast in prominent roles in Mandala Murders.
The first production from YRF Entertainment, is “The Railway Men,” a tribute to the unsung heroes of the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy. It stars R. Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, Divyendu Sharma and Babil Khan. The protagonists of The Railway Men are workers at the Bhopal railway station who saved thousands of lives. The show is nearly ready.
