Wamiqa Gabbi who plays a detective in her upcoming streaming show Charlie Chopra and the Mystery of Solang Valley spoke about her character.
"Playing the role of India's first female detective in a show is an incredible honour. Charlie Chopra is a character that I have poured my heart into, and I can't wait for the audience to join me on this thrilling journey. It’s not often that such parts are written and to play a role etched into the title of the project is even more special,” Gabbi said.
She further mentioned, “Not often do we see women in parts like these, and Vishal sir is truly someone who writes every character with such detail. I have always been extremely fond of his female characters with which he pens them into his script and Charlie is no different. It’s my most ambitious role till date and I can’t wait to see how everyone receives Charlie as the brand new detective in town.”
The murder mystery is an official adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel, ‘The Sittaford Mystery’, and is brought to life by filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj.
The series follows the story of Charlie Chopra, essayed by Gabbi who is entangled in a murder mystery to save an innocent convict and find the real culprit in a town full of suspects.
The series boasts an ensemble cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Gulshan Grover, Neena Gupta, Lara Dutta, Priyanshu Painyuli, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Imaadudin Shah, Vivaan Shah and Paoli Dam.
