While the entire entertainment industry had come to a halt amid the Coronavirus-induced lockdown, Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartk D Nishandar-led GSEAMS found a way of content creation and shot their web series in Goa. The much awaited and soon to be released web series Naxalbari is also a story of how the producers and actors from Marathi industry are making a big leap to Hindi web series arena.
A month ago, the producers recently released its teaser depicting the outline of the content of the series. It’s about the movement run by the jungle dwellers for their rights and against the suppression by the mightier. The series promises to cover almost every angle of the issue, right from the deprival of the poor villagers to suppression of their rights to economic exploitation of the natural resources for the benefits of the politicians and industrialists mentored by them. The trailer, which came out two weeks back, gives a fair idea of the content of the story and also arouses the curiosity about the series.
Naxalbari is GSEAM’s first Hindi web series which will soon release on Zee5.
