The latest web-series on Amazon Prime Video is taking the musical route. Bandish Bandits, which will feature original music by composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, will be premiere on the streaming platform on 4 August.

The musical drama has been created by Anand Tiwari and Amritpal Singh Bindra and stars relative newcomers Shreya Chaudhary and Ritwik Bhowmik.

The two leads play opposites who are attracted to each other as Bhowmick is Radhe, an Indian classical singer, while Chaudhary is Tamanna, a pop star. Their love story is set against the backdrop of Hindustani classical and pop music.

The 10-part musical web-series, which is directed by Tiwari, also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Sheeba Chaddha and Rajesh Tailang.

In a statement, Amritpal Singh Bindra said, “Bandish Bandits has been a true labour of love and we are pleased to be bringing it to a dynamic global service like [Amazon] Prime Video, which champions unique original content from around the world. While elements of the show are rooted firmly in Indian tradition and values, this is without doubt a modern musical romance that will appeal to a global audience.”

Tiwari added, “Bandish Bandits is a story about the meeting of two individuals and cultures that are in many ways different, and yet in other ways incredibly similar. While each character has a unique and compelling story in its own right, it’s how these stories come together which makes this series so powerful, romantic and real."
