Netflix's Choona trailer showcased an exciting heist drama with stunning visuals and hilarious jabs. Pushpendra Nath Misra wrote and directed this satire. Choona, a Flying Saucer-produced epic heist comedy-drama, will debut on Netflix.
An astrologer, a highly skilled, shape-shifting informer, a gully ka gunda, a demoted police officer, a once successful contractor, and a resourceful mediator, Bishnu, plan a heist to defeat their common enemy, Shukla. They'll steal 600 crore from the lion's den! Shukla's party office has armed guards, over 100 fit staff, and CCTV cameras everywhere. With so much at stake, this unprecedented theft will require more than brains and brawn. Can they lagao Choona to Shukla?
Choona will delight audiences with its astrological twist.
Showrunner, Director, and Writer Pushpendra Nath Misra said in a statement that Choona is grand and unique—a world that is quintessentially Indian because of elements like astrology and jugaad. It has action, drama, romance, thrills, and humour to totally delight the audience. Choona promotes people's power, and Netflix's content-focused practises make working with them rewarding. They know how to tell a global story with hyperlocal flair. Netflix supported Choona, a work of love with over 100 days of shooting and gobs of VFX. The cast is great, and the actors complemented each other and worked hard to fit the universe and the series is a binge-worthy eight-course dinner.
Netflix India Series Head Tanya Bami said Rana Naidu, Scoop, Kohrra, Class, Trial By Fire, and now Choona. Their members love their series, and they are delighted to keep offering new narratives, genres, and narrative approaches. Choona is exceptional, has a unique storytelling style, and has a great cast, led by Jimmy Shergill. Their audience enjoys heist dramas like Money Heist and Chor Nikal ke Bhaaga and is excited to see how people like Lucknow's heist.
When the trailer debuted, Jimmy Shergill stated that it was incredibly exciting to be a part of the show because Pushpendra Nath Misra, a brilliant director, had put together an incredible ensemble cast for it and it would be available on Netflix. Its high-spirited story and rich culture make it great entertainment, and Shukla is a clever character as he reacts erratically. Convincing Shukla, especially at home, is difficult. Thus, Jimmy further asks if Shukla has been duped.
Along with Jimmy, Aashim Gulati, Vikram Kochhar, Chandan Roy, Namit Das, Gyanendra Tripathi, Atul Srivastava, Monika Panwar, and Niharika Lyra Dutt are part of Choona.
