Disney+ Hotstar brings a tale of magic and miracle with ‘Taaza Khabar’

The show is directed by Himank Gaur, written by the powerful writer duo Hussain & Abbas Dalal.

Mumbai: Disney+ Hotstar's next comedy-drama series is scheduled to provide a one-of-a-kind uplifting series that will take viewers on a captivating new voyage of a guy stumbling across magical powers and the ripples it generates in his humble life. Taaza Khabar, a Hotstar Specials show directed by Himank Gaur, is written by the powerful writer duo Hussain & Abbas Dalal.

The show stars Shriya Pilgaonkar, JD Chakravarthy, Deven Bhojani, Prathmesh Parab, Nitya Mathur, Shilpa Shukla, and Mithilesh Chaturvedi in pivotal roles, with content creator Bhuvan Bam as the lead.

Five of the many reasons why Taaza Khabar should be watched are:

YouTube sensation Bhuvan Bam makes his OTT debut

Taaza Khabar promises to bring out a never-before-seen avatar of YouTube sensation Bhuvan Bam, who is playing the character of Vasya.

Vasya is us, and we are Vasya! His ups and downs, highs and lows, wishful thinking and aspirations—this is a story that we all have lived in our own ways.

Shot in Aamchi Mumbai!

Taaza Khabar is an emotional powerhouse with elements of comedy, drama, and romance, but it also has a lot of universal appeal, making it the whole package.

An all-rounder cast

A peek at the powerful cast of Taaza Khabar is all you need to hit the play button. The show has some powerhouses who are superstars in their own rite. Think Bhuvan Bam, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Prathamesh Parab, JD Chakravarthy, and Deven Bhojani! These dynamic actors form an eclectic mix, promising a complete entertainer with their interesting characteristics.

The epic one-liners!

The show has promised epic dialogues since the trailer's release, whether it's Vasya's "Samajh Main Nahin Aa Raha, Ye Vardaan Hai Ya Shrapp, Naseeb Ki Baarish Hai, Ya Kismat Mere Pe Moot Rahin Hai" or Aai's "Logon Ka Achha Time Nahin Tikta, Apna Bura Time Kitna Tikega?" The dialogues are hard-hitting, aspirational, and right on point!

Reality check? 

Borrowing realism from society, the narrative of Taaza Khabar builds on different kinds of people, emotions, dreams, and the realities of life. It makes us believe in the world of miracles, as we witness each character navigate their way through ordinary but extraordinary situations. While these facts hit you square in the face, the fictitious angle is the salvation we all seek, both in film and in real life!
