Watch Karanvir Bohra in a candid conversation with Rajeev Khandelwal on Juzz Baat here:
The Casino is the story of a rich yet humble, simple and loving Vicky, the heir to his father’s multi-billion-dollar casino. The web series is packed with gloss, glitz and glamour while also boasting of thriller elements like mystery and conspiracy in a high-class society. The narrative will unfold against the backdrop of a big casino. Popular musicians will be contributing to the album of the digital drama.
Speaking on his digital debut, Karavnir Bohra said, “It’s a great time to be an actor because truly content is on an exponential growth with the digital medium today. We are being able to experiment with concepts, make content for niche audiences, and have artistic liberty without limitations. I am excited about making my digital debut because truly The Casino on ZEE5 is a unique series and my character has shades and nuances which I haven’t experimented with as an actor before. It is going to be interesting to see the audiences’ reaction to these new shades as well as a backdrop which hasn’t been explored in India yet, that of the gambler’s world!”
Directed by Hardik Gajjar and Produced by Hardik Gajjar Films, The Casino is slated for a 2020 release and will be shot across Mumbai and Nepal. Stay tuned for more updates about the web series.
