The trailer for Bestseller, the upcoming thriller series of the Amazon Prime video starring Mithun Chakraborty, Shruti Hassan and Arjun Bajwa, was released on Tuesday afternoon.
In the trailer, novelist Tahir Wasir (played by Arjan) confronts the writer’s ban and calls himself ‘A Wannabe Chetan Bhagat’. He meets Mathura (Sruthi) on a simple girl from a small town who is a big fan and seeks guidance to write his own story. Desiring to fulfill his publisher’s expectations, Tahir decides to use his story for his own novel. The trailer then turns into a mystery, with police investigating the attacks of the social media giant on Mithun Chakraborty, Tahir and Meadow.
Apart from Mithun, Sruthi and Arjun, the series also stars Gauhar Khan, Satyajit Dube and Sonali Kulkarni in the lead roles. Bestseller director Mukul Abhiyankar said, “After reading the script, it was very exciting and thrilling and I immediately knew it would make a spectacular watch.”
Speaking about his debut in the OTT world four decades later, actor Mithun Chakraborty said, “I could not have heard of a better streaming introduction. I have great faith in Mukul Abiyangar and I believe he has done an admirable job in creating a very entertaining thriller. Bestseller will surely attract suspense and thriller fans around the world, and I look forward to it.
Shruti Hassan said that after reading the script he should be included in his schedule for the series. “When Siddharth Malhotra approached me for Bestseller, I was working on several projects and I did not know if I could make this promise, but by the time I went through the script, I could not put it down. I was hooked on the layers in the story and I found my character to be very stressful and I had to do it, ”he said.
