Hina Khan, Chandan Roy Sanyal to star in murder mystery Shadyantra

The show will stream from December 18 onwards

Hina Khan, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Kunaal Roy Kapur will be seen starring in Shadyantra, a murder mystery.

Khan, who plays the role of Natasha Malhotra, said: "I am delighted that my desire to work in a play has been fulfilled and I am making my debut in theatre with Shadyantra. I play Natasha who is very naive, trusting and giving but then a tragedy forces her to look at her life and her relationships more closely and then her instinct of self-preservation kicks in. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the character and the whole process as I always wanted to do theatre. This teleplay has given me an opportunity to be part of the theatre fraternity and I am hopeful to be part of more teleplays in future."

Sanyal who plays Rohan Tiwari said: "I am deeply rooted as an actor in the discipline of theatre as a stalwart like Habib Tanvir, Tim Supple and Alyque Padamsee mentored me. I have been connected to the stage all through my career and it is very fulfilling to experience the joy of table readings and long rehearsals once again. What I also liked is that the characters in Shadyantra have more than one shade. My character is a smooth-talking charmer but also switches between different moods seamlessly."

Kapur who plays detective Mohan Khanna said, "It was nice to try to give Mohan a certain depth and nuance that we are unused to seeing in mainstream portrayals. It was wonderful to be a part of this project."

Directed by Ganesh Yadav, the teleplay also stars Shruti Bapna, Anang Desai and Sumukha and releases on December 18.
