Director Bhav Dhulia who helmed the series, The Freelancer starring Mohit Raina and Anupam Kher in the lead, feels grateful as the series has accelerated his career growth.
Speaking about his experience of working with Neeraj Pandey, Dhulia said, “This is our second collaboration and I was offered to direct The Freelancer by Neeraj Sir, as soon as I finished the shooting schedule of the previous show I was completely taken aback by the unique story and the grandeur of the series.”
“It was an absolutely new world for me and the best chance to break through the genre I had worked on earlier. The experience of shooting with sir was unique because it was an international large scale production venture the likes of which we haven’t seen before for a web series,” said the director.
He further shared, “I was transported from the villages of Bihar in ‘Khakee’ to Morocco for The Freelancer. We had a mix crew with people from Morocco, Europe, America and the Middle East. It was a one of a kind experience to lead a diverse crew of this magnitude.”
Produced by Friday Storytellers, Pandey is the creator and showrunner of the series. Set to release on September 1, on Disney+ Hotstar, The Freelancer also features Sushant Singh, John Kokken, Gauri Balaji and Navneet Malik, Manjiri Faddnis, Sarah Jane Dias amongst others in pivotal roles.
