Modern Love Mumbai, which has been produced by Pritish Nandy Communications, will be premiered on Amazon Prime Video on 13 May.

An adaptation of The New York Times column Modern Love, the anthology will look at six diverse yet universal stories of all shades and moods of love, directed by filmmakers Vishal Bhardwaj, Hansal Mehta, Shonali Bose, Dhruv Sehgal, Alankrita Shrivastava and Nupur Asthana.

Earlier this year on Valentine’s Day, the streaming platform announced three Indian adaptations of the anthology series in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The Hindi web-series series features a diverse mix of artistes, including Tanuja, Pratik Gandhi, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Wamiqa Gabbi, Sarika, Chitrangda Singh, Arshad Warsi, Tanvi Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah.

Shonali Bose’s Raat Rani stars Fata Sanaim Shaikh, Bhupendra Jadawat and Dilip Prabhavalkar. Baai, directed by Hansal Mehta, stars Tanuja, Pratik Gandhi and Ranveer Brar. The Bhardwaj-helmed Mumbai Dragon features Yeo Yann Yann, Meiyang Chang, Wamiqa Gabbi and Naseeruddin Shah.

My Beautiful Wrinkles, directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, stars Sarika, Danesh Razvi, Ahsaas Channa and Tanvi Azmi. Dhruv Sehgal’s I Love Thane features Masaba Gupta, Ritwik Bhowmik, Prateik Babbar, Aadar Malik and Dolly Singh; while Cutting Chai, directed by Nupur Asthana, stars Chitrangda Singh and Arshad Warsi.

Aparna Purohit, head of India originals at Amazon Prime Video, stated, “Modern Love Mumbai features a bouquet of six heart-warming, lyrical stories that explore love in its many forms and together all the stories represent a unique love affair with the poly-cultural city of Mumbai. We are certain that these stories will add hope, humour and some sunshine to your lives. We are happy that Modern Love Mumbai further solidifies our long-standing relationship with our producers, Pritish Nandy Communications.”

Nandy added, “We believe that just like New York, the city of Mumbai also has a mesmerizing charm, which we have explored and captured. With the most wonderful cast of masters and contemporary, Indian and international actors and some of the finest directors, writers and music creators that we have today, Modern Love Mumbai beautifully negotiates through the different shades of love that Mumbai, the city of dreams, throws up and celebrates.”

“I am confident that every story in this anthology series will tug at and win the audiences’ hearts,” he continued. “As they say, love makes the world go round and it’s been our absolute pleasure to partner with Amazon, John Carney and The New York Times in bringing to India these stories of everyday love with everyday people in a whole new normal kind of celebration.”
