MUMBAI—Alt Balaji’s newest web series “Haq Se” starring Rajeev Khandelwal and Surveen Chawla will be releasing on the web platform soon. To give the series a cinematic feel, the makers, Manor Rama Pictures, shot in real-life locations like Manali and also created several elaborate sets in Mumbai.
“We shot for over a month in Manali. The actors have worked extremely hard and trekked up and down mountains. There were times when there was no access to cars or buses and everyone adjusted so much. Each and every actor on the show has been so diligent, from being ready on time in the freezing cold to giving topnotch performances regardless of the temperatures. Each prop, every single thing was sourced locally from Kashmir or designed from scratch, and the same goes for every costume,” said Karan Raj Kohli, co-founder of Manor Rama Pictures.
He continued, “We started casting as soon as we finalized the story. We are extremely excited to work on this, considering so many film-centric names are attached to it. It was an absolute pleasure working with Rajeev, Surveen and director Ken Ghosh, who held numerous workshops with the actors to better the nuances of their characters. Our DOP, Anubhav Bansal, has added a lot of value to the look and feel of the show. However, I have to say that my favorite actor on the show has been Aanchal. She hasn’t only been an absolute pleasure to work with but has also made the character shine through. We really see her going a long way considering this is one of her first projects.”
With story and screenplay by Devika Bhagat and dialogues by Renuka Kunzru, “Haq Se” is set in the backdrop of Kashmir and is a story based on four sisters, their loves, their lives, and their ambition that is bound by the situation in Kashmir. The series will release on Alt Balaji worldwide in early 2018.
