Voot's new series to show urban marriage issues


MUMBAI: Viacom18’s OTT platform Voot announces a new 6-episode original series titled Time Out featuring Tahir Raj Bhasin and Sarah Jane Dias. After the success of its recent Voot Originals like Yo Ke Hua Bro, It’s Not That Simple, Untag and others, Time Out is Voot’s tenth original series streaming from 28 November.

It tells the story of Rahul and Radha’s perfect romance, perfect relationship and perfect life until he realises that he’s been living the life he’s supposed to and not necessarily the one he wants to. The series will introduce the audience to the side of urban marriages where the couple has to deal with issues of responsibility, reliability and readiness.

During the launch, Voot head of content Monika Shergill said, “Adulting in India has never been easy! And the cocktail of expectations & pressures, from family & society, make it even more challenging. With Time Out, we take the audience on a dramatic, fun and totally vicarious journey to explore this highly relevant & relatable modern day theme. Originals at Voot are maturing with every offering and in the coming year with a robust lineup of big series, we are aiming to become the preferred destination for the new discerning digital viewer.’

Commenting on the same, director Danish Aslam further added saying, “Voot as a platform encourages innovation in content that is both engaging and experimental. Thematically, the story is reflective of the cultural and social milieu I’m part of – married couples who are coming to terms with the idea of parenthood. Thus, directing Time Out was an opportunity to explore the insights that seemed the most relevant and immediate to my life and experiences.”

Talking about playing Rahul, Tahir Raj Bhasin said, “It was the complexity of the role that drew me to play Rahul. It was challenging to portray a character’s descent from order to chaos that leads to a journey filled with interesting yet gut-wrenching choices.”

Talking about playing Radha, Sarah Jane Dias said, “Radha is that girlfriend of yours who has her whole life figured out before she's even lived it. For once, however, she's forced into a situation where she has no choice but to give up the driver's seat. I said yes to playing her because it's always challenging for us as humans to 'free flow' through life and trust that things will always work out, eventually.”
