The lead pair of the web series reveal the reason behind the 'new chapter' in the title
Actors Ayush Mehra and Aisha Ahmed are gearing up for the launch of their new show, Minus One: New Chapter, which looks like a follow-up story of their earlier YouTube show, Minus One.
When asked about the reason behind calling the show a 'new chapter', Ayush told OTTplay, "We've called it a new chapter because the premise of the show is the same -- two friends living in the same house. The first season released on YouTube and was a small, slice-of-life story that was noy very intense. However, in the new chapter of the show, we have touched upon several issues, and the tone of the narrative is a romantic drama. We also want people to know that it is a new story -- a fresh start, so even if you did not watch the first show, you still can watch this one without thinking about what happened to the characters earlier."
Adding to this, Aisha said, "In fact, it is a huge chapter for us, because Lionsgate Play came to us for a show that we made and released on YouTube. We started small, but the streaming platform has shown faith and invested in us. We have gone a few layers deeper and touched upon topics that we did not in the earlier show. In the new show, we talk about some dynamics of a relationship that usually unexplored in any love story."
Minus One: New Chapter is a nuanced and unflinching tale of love, heartbreaks, and friendship between Varun (Ayush) and Ria (Aisha), and how they don't get their happily ever after. It releases on February 14 on Lionsgate Play.
