The psychological crime thriller will also star Bollywood leading star Abhishek Bachchan, who is also taking his first big digital step with the new series, set for release on July 10. The show will also feature actress Saiyami Kher, while Amit Sadh will be returning for the second series.
Menen said in reference to her big debut: “For me, I was excited at the prospect of being able to do what I have always wanted to do as an actor. Be in a space where content is open and free.
“So as an actor, I suddenly felt really hopeful when this OTT [over-the-top] stuff started coming. I was like, 'Oh there you go. That's my space! That's where I would thrive.”
The actress also spoke about working alongside Bachchan, saying: “Abhishek and me, that's an unusual pairing. But Mayank (director) said, 'I always knew you and Abhishek would look fantastic together. Even the difference in you will look fabulous'.
“And we felt it as well. Actually, there is some kind of chemistry that works. Our characters look nice together. They look like they belong together. These things are not something you plan, they just happen.”
Nithya Menen and Abhishek Bachchan will be seen playing a married couple who do all that they can to bring back their kidnapped daughter Siya.
Directed by Mayank Sharma, the series is created and produced by Abundantia Entertainment and will be available in 200 countries and territories worldwide.
Sharma said: “With this new chapter I am excited to take Prime members on a new roller-coaster journey of emotions and thrills that will leave you gasping for breath.”
