“What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Choona’? For me, it is the quintessentially Indian flavour of ‘choona la gaana’ (deceiving). The excitement of discovering who deceived whom and how they did it is incomparable, especially when it’s the weak pi tted against the powerful.
There’s no synonym that can do justice to this feeling, since we are all about the drama and rooting for the underdog s,” Misra shared.
“Imagine the thrill of a heist combined with the lightness of a comedy. Put this together with amazingly talented actors in a long-form series format, and you get ‘Choona’,” he added.
The director shared that work on “Choona” has commenced.
The Netflix series, Choona is a heist comedy in which an u nlikely group of people band together to take down a common enemy — a corrupt politician who has wronged them — using jugaad as their only weapon.
