Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha to return with podcast thriller series Virus 2062
The series is about a doctor and her patient who claims he is from the future
Actor couple Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal, who lent their voices to the main characters in the podcast thriller series Virus 2062, are set to return for its second season.
The series revolves around a doctor-patient relationship. Ali plays Patient 63, or Peter Perera who tells Richa’s Dr Gayatri that he is from the future, from the year 2062, and he has travelled to the past to save the world from getting destroyed by a deadly pandemic.
Talking about the series, Ali said, "It is nice when fans, viewers or even listeners reach out to you directly to tell you what they like and even remember your work. For example, 'Virus 2062'. That audio series was so loved by people that Richa and I still get requests to come out with season 2. Now there is a growing popularity of podcasts, but this series came out in 2021 and it was a huge experiment for us even then to be part of something like this. It all pays off when you see a reaction like this."
Meanwhile, Ali will be seen in Vishal Bharadwaj's next movie Khufiya. The film is a spy thriller, and also stars Tabu, Wamiqa Gabbi, Ashish Vidyarthi, Haque Badhon and Alexx O'Nell.
Taking the direct-to-digital route, the film will be released on Netflix. He will also be in Kandahar alongside Gerard Butler. The film is set to have a worldwide release on May 26.
