MUMBAI: The Viral Fever, creators of the web content in India and makers of the series “TVF Pitchers”, “Permanent Roommates” have added another feather to their cap! Their original web series TVF Tripling which released last year has bagged the award for the best scriptwriting for web programme/series at the recently concluded 22nd Asian Television Awards in Singapore.

TVF Originals head Sameer Saxena said, “Tripling is a very special show for TVF. Thanks to Sumeet & Akarsh, we had a story that was true to the experiences we share with family, and loved by Indian audiences. With this award, we are confident that these stories are true beyond India as well.”

Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, the web series which premiered in August last year, is an unforgettable, unplanned road trip that the three siblings - Chandan (played by Vyas), Chanchal (played by Maanvi Gagroo) and Chitvan (played by Amol Parashar) - are on to meet their parents. The tale is loaded with the emotions that highlight the unique and enduring relationship between siblings. The show, which is written by lead actor and scriptwriter Sumeet Vyas along with Akarsh Khurana, has won this award in its 1st ever year. This was also The Viral Fever and India’s 1st nomination in this category. The series broke new grounds in digital entertainment in India with story-telling, production scale, and viewership. Tripling is available to watch on TVF’s original content platform, TVFPlay.

Vyas said, “Tripling was created from very personal experiences. Beyond funny situations and crazy people, there’s a warm story that we were trying to tell, and I’m so so proud that people got it. Thank you ATA for recognising and appreciating our effort.”

Khurana added, “The win was a wonderful surprise and a reminder of how much love there is for the series. It's the perfect motivation for Sumeet and me as we are in the process of writing Season 2. It's also lots of pressure!”
