Now we hear, another two Bollywood actors have joined the cast of this Netflix Original. Manoj Bajpayee and Mohit Raina are the two who have been finalised for the project.
Talking about the film, Manoj Bajpayee said:
“It has been a couple of years since our short film, Kriti, which created quite a massive buzz in the digital world. Loved every moment on the set with Shirish Kunder as a director. When he called me to do this small yet very significant part in Mrs. Serial Killer, I couldn’t delay in saying yes to it, as I found the script quite engaging. This is my first film with Netflix and it has been a memorable journey with them. And about the film, as Shirish says, ‘What you see is not necessarily what you get.”
Mohit Raina, who was last seen in Uri: The Surgical Strike, said:
“I have had a fantastic experience bringing a conflicted character to life in Mrs. Serial Killer, and his dynamic with the other characters in the film only adds to the mystery surrounding him. This is my first film with Netflix and the idea of reaching over 149 million people across the world at one go is truly overwhelming. I have had a blessed year and want to present the best yet with this film.”
This will be the first time Manoj Bajpayee and Jacqueline will be working together.
Mrs. Serial Killer is the story about a woman whose husband is framed and imprisoned for serial murders. She performs all the murders exactly like the serial killer to prove her husband innocent. Directed by Shirish Kunder, it is produced by Farah Khan.
