MUMBAI: Arre, the digital media brand co-founded by Ronnie Screwvala, B. Saikumar and Ajay Chacko will premiere a new sci-fi thriller series titled A.I.SHA - My Virtual Girlfriend. The platform has associated with Gillette Flexball for the series which will release on 9 April 2016.

The web series is the story of a relationship between a man and woman…only, the woman is the first-of-its-kind Artificial Intelligence Simulated Humanoid Assistant (A.I.SHA), created by the show’s protagonist, Sam.

Tech geek and coder Sameer Luthra (Sam) is frustrated with life and his soul-sucking boss (Sid, played by Raghu Ram). A.I.SHA, his secret project, is what keeps him going. A.I.SHA is the best thing that ever happened to Sam. A.I.SHA is beautiful, A.I.SHA is smart. A.I.SHA is also crazy. Can A.I.SHA redeem or ruin Sam’s life? Do we truly understand the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI)? What if AI was to become self-aware? Is it man and machine or man versus machine?

Produced by Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman through their first production venture, Monozygotic, Ram will also be seen playing a pivotal role in the show. “I'm very excited to step into creating fiction for the first time in my career with A.I.SHA. With the arrival of a new-age digital media destination like Arré, there is a scope for telling fresh, new, and edgy stories for young people that'll never be told on TV. I hope the new viewers like what we've worked so hard to create,” said Ram.

Commenting on the association and the initiative, Gillette India country marketing manager Karthik Srivatsan said, “Gillette is extremely proud to collaborate with Arré in launching, A.I.SHA, India’s first digital sci-fi thriller web series. The partnership resonates the core belief at the heart of Arré and Gillette. While Gillette’s core philosophy has always been to innovate, to serve evolving consumer needs, Arré has come up with this modern-age content destination in line with evolving viewership patterns. While, with the recent launch of Gillette FlexBall, Gillette has rebuilt the modern man’s shaving with the revolutionary FlexBall technology that has been specifically engineered to provide a three dimensional motion for the ultimate shaving experience, A.I.SHA is the first-of-its-kind clutter-breaking online series, which we are sure will keep the audience glued.”

To bring technical authenticity, the series has also partnered with Palo Alto Networks, the next-generation security company,as the cyber security advisers and Dell as the technology partner.
