Mirzapur pair Ali Fazal and Shriya Pilgaonkar reunite for House Arrest
The situational comedy is being co-directed by Shashanka Ghosh and Samit Basu
Mirzapur pair, Ali Fazal and Shriya Pilgaonkar, are reuniting for an upcoming web film produced by Netflix. Titled House Arrest, the situational comedy is being co-directed by Shashanka Ghosh (Veere De Wedding) and novelist Samit Basu. Ali and Shriya recently started shooting for the film in Delhi.
“House Arrest is a fantastic script. It’s witty, very fresh, and for me selfishly, the character is very, very arched and layered. So it was a fun time on sets to play this part. Even though it’s a comedy, it’s complex and I got to go on set everyday and do something new and fresh even though it was all one place.,” Ali said.
On his second collaboration with his Mirzapur co-star, Ali added, “Working with Shriya is always fun and working the second time with her was a natural comfort that just came without trying. Also Shashanka Ghosh is a genius, as too is Samit Basu, who is the brains behind this venture. They both have such clarity on what they want and how they want it.”
