Sumaira Shaikh in Dongri Danger

Amazon Prime Video has announced its new  stand-up special, Dongri Danger, featuring Sumaira Shaikh.

This is Sumaira's first stand-up special, dropping on February 25. She was previously associated with Prime Video as one of the writers and actors on Pushpavalli.

In Dongri Danger, Sumaira talks about road trips, her love for gangsters, and growing up in Dongri. The show is produced by OML, co-produced by Motormouth Writers and directed by Sumukhi Suresh.

“A comic’s first stand up special is like her/his wedding, so basically I am putting up my wedding video,”  Sumaira shares.

“It only makes sense that my first stand up special is on Amazon Prime Video since this is where it all began for me. I have been developing Dongri Danger since 2017 but it all came together recently. Writing fiction has taken me one step closer to finding my voice. I have classic observational bits on what’s your rank in a group or how Tsunami water going back is the best relaxation video, but I have also explored story telling by talking about growing up in Dongri or how my relatives judged me more at my brother’s funeral than at any wedding I have attended. I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity, and I hope that the viewers across the globe will love the show as much as the live audience did.”
