Mona Singh and Ashutosh Gowariker will be starring together in their upcoming survival drama Kaala Paani directed by Sameer Saxena and Amit Golani. Gowarikar will make his debut as an actor in this drama series.
A grounded story about the fight for survival, the series questions audiences on how far they would go to survive.
Talking about the announcement, Saxena said, "Kaala Paani is a fresh and uncharted genre in Indian storytelling. The series is a survival drama featuring an ensemble of characters who are all trying to escape the wrath of nature, as the vast sea confines them for thousands of kilometres. In this invisible battle between humans and nature, these individuals discover that their destinies are intertwined, not just with each other, but also with the environment."

Kaala Paani is a first of its kind survival drama, with compelling characters and deeply emotional storylines. This will be our second collaboration with Posham Pa Pictures, bringing the signature style of its immensely talented creator Sameer Saxena to our members."
