Raveena Tandon is set to make her digital debut with Aranyak. Helmed by Vinay Waikul, Aranyak is a supernatural crime thriller produced by Roy Kapur Films and Rohan Sippy of Ramesh Sippy Entertainment and will stream on Netflix soon. The web series also features Parambrata Chatterjee, Ashutosh Rana, Zakir Hussain, and Megna Malik in key roles.
Following the disappearance of a foreign tourist in the quaint, dewy town in Himachal Pradesh, local cop Kasturi Dogra played by Raveena has to tie up with her city-bred replacement cop Angad played by Parambrata. The two must race against time to get to the bottom of the Himalayan myth of the barbarous serial killing entity and solve the high-profile case.
Raveena Tandon took to her Instagram handle on March 3 this year to announce her digital debut.
The shooting for Aranyak was done in a start-to-finish marathon schedule in Himachal Pradesh while the nation reeled under the pandemic. Reflecting on her shooting experience in an interview with Indian Express, the national-award-winning actress said that the schedule was wrapped without hassles.
She went on to say that while women-centric narratives have come up in the Hindi film industry every decade, the advent of the digital medium has catalysed it further by opening up greater avenues for a wide variety of content. And this has only encouraged actors and filmmakers to push the envelope, explore good stories and raise the bar for quality content.
“Even the way they view an Indian woman, their perspective has changed,” Tandon added, saying that women protagonists have been more prominent than their male counterparts, especially on Netflix.
