After Rajkummar Rao announced th e cast for Lionsgate Play show Hiccups and Hookups, an official adapt ation of American comedy-drama show Casual, Lionsgate Play dropped a new poster. 

The still features Lara Dutta, Prateik Babbar, and Shinnova who are all seated in a bunk bathtub structure. The bathtubs, though, have holes in them out of which water is spouting, an imagery that alludes to the "hiccups" bit of the show.

Kunal Kohli is the showrunner of the show that revolves around a newly separated mother (Dutta) and her bachelor brother (Babbar). They guide each other through the world of dating, as she tries to singlehandedly raise her teenage daughter (Shinnova), according to Variety

The cast also includes Divya Seth, Nassar Abdullah, Khalid Siddiqui, Meiyang Chang, Meera Chopra, and Ayn Zoya.

At the announcement of the show, Rohit Jain, managing director South Asia and networks-emerging markets Asia, Lionsgate India, said, “With our first Indian original series we aim to stay true to our ethos of entertaining our audience with unique, bold and edgy content.”

This is not Dutta's first streaming project. She has previously starred in Hotstar Specials action-comedy Hundred with Rinku Rajguru. Ruchi Narain, Ashutosh Shah, and Taher Shabbir directed the series that released on the platform last year in April.

Meanwhile, Babbar has been a part of Four More Shots Please! for Amazon Prime Video and Chakravyuh for MXPlayer. In Season 1 of Chakravyuh, the actor played Inspector Virkar who is investigating a murder case that is linked to a cybercrime. 

Hiccups and Hookups will premiere on November 26.
