Jimmy Sheirgill and Namit Das All Set to Star in New Netflix Heist Comedy Series Titled Choona

Actors Jimmy Sheirgill, Namit Das and Aashim Gulati will feature in the long-form series Choona which was announced on Wednesday by the show’s director Pushpendra Nath Misra.

Others who will be seen in the show include Vikram Kochhar, Monika Panwar, Gyanendra Tripathi, Chandan Roy, Atul Srivastava and Niharika Lyra Dutt.

“What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Choona’? For me, it is the quintessentially Indian flavour of ‘choona la gaana’ (deceiving). The excitement of discovering who deceived whom and how they did it is incomparable, especially when it’s the weak pi tted against the powerful.

There’s no synonym that can do justice to this feeling since we are all about the drama and rooting for the underdogs,” Misra shared.

“Imagine the thrill of a heist combined with the lightness of a comedy. Put this together with amazingly talented actors in a long-form series format, and you get ‘Choona’,” he added.

The director also shared that work on the series has commenced.

The Netflix series, Choona is a heist comedy in which an unlikely group of people band together to take down a common enemy – a corrupt politician who has wronged them – using ‘jugaad’ as their only weapon.
