The Great Wedding of Munnes is a Jio Studios Original web series created and produced by Raaj Shaandilyaa that will air exclusively on Voot Select. The show's primary characters are Abhishek Banerjee and Barkha Singh. The series is directed by Sunil Subramani and tells the story of a middle-class man's desperate attempts to marry the woman of his dreams, which leads to a sequence of comic mishaps. Principal photography will be in Mathura, Agra, Hyderabad, and Jaipur.

"This is my first collaboration with Jio Studios and also my debut in the OTT world," Raaj Shaandilyaa remarked of his foray into the OTT realm. 

The filmmaker shared that with so many criminal and thriller shows being produced, he strongly believes that a comedy show on par with a Bollywood film should be produced. Shaandilyaa also said that Jio Studios' crew endorsed his vision, and they had a terrific time working together so far. The director's goal is to buck the trend and provide an enjoyable journey for the audience.

"I usually go for roles that push me as an actor, and I was really looking for a solid comedy script, and this is a really humorous story," Abhishek Banerjee, the man who rules the OTT arena, remarked. He was really taken away when the producers asked him to portray Munnes and told me the story. They have started filming in Rohtak for the show, and he is pretty excited about it.

Barkha Singh, who is known for capturing hearts in the OTT domain, said: "I am pleased to be a part of this laugh riot." She shared that the character is fascinating and she can't wait to play her. For the first time, she is looking forward to sharing screen space with Abhishek, and it looks like a lot of fun.
