“Just Human Things” & Qyuki launch ‘Minus One’; A quirky story that humanizes your ex

MUMBAI: ‘Minus One’ is a quirky web series co-produced by Writeous Studios & Qyuki Digital, powered by POPxo, featuring Ayush Mehra and Aisha Ahmed. The story revolves around Riya (Aisha) and Varun (Ayush) who live-in together after a break-up and create a life that is perfect for them but difficult for the world to accept. Directed by Shubham Yogi along with creator Sidhanta Mathur and writer Aakash Bhojwani, Minus One aims to capture the hearts of everyone.

The six-episode series that is approximately 15 minutes each is unique in its treatment while encapsulating the emotions involved with relationships between exes and how it affects people in their circle. The series premiered on the Just Human Things, a YouTube channel that presents content as a showcase of optimism at its finest and promulgates the belief that life isn’t so bad after all!

Talking about the experience Ayush Mehra Shares, “Minus one was to date the best experience of my life! I absolutely loved working with the director Shubham Yogi and producer Sidhanta Mathur who went out of their way to make each moment feel special. My co-star Aisha is a gem to work with and I could not have asked for a better opportunity to showcase my talent. Thanks to Just Human Things and Qyuki, I feel like I have a found a tribe that I will be associated with, for life”

Speaking about the series Aisha Ahmed Shares, “Minus one has been the warmest set experience, to come together and create something with love and happiness. I hope that everyone will love it as much as we do!”

Talking about creating this quirky web series Sidhanta Mathur  Creator & Producer of Minus One says, “To tell a story about exes who live together was never the point, their friendship was. And that’s the optimism of it and this is the kind of story we want to tell on Just Human Things with a fresh and unique take. Being my first under my company’s banner, putting it all together was one of the most exciting but nerve-wracking experiences. Qyuki came on board as a co-producer and from there, things kicked off amazingly. We got a brilliant cast and crew who all came together because they really loved the idea of the show!  We truly worked together as a family to make sure we create a series that stands out and we are thrilled that our viewers have given it so much love”.

Speaking about his directorial experience Shubham Yogi Creator & Director of Minus One says, “Minus Ones is what my friends called me and my ex-girlfriend turned flatmate. Although we never saw ourselves as revolutionaries, everyone who met us during those years definitely thought us odd. Sometimes people judged us, and sometimes they reflected on their relationships with their exes. Out of these experiences came the idea for Minus One. And Sid was one of the first people to hear it. From that short discussion 3 years, Sid and I always knew that we would try and bring this story to life someday. Aisha & Ayush took to the characters with ease, and soon into the shooting schedule, I found them improvising to better our vision. From Sid's belief in the idea to the entire production crew coming together and giving it life, this has been a blessed journey.”
