Adding yet another interesting show to ALTBalaji’s vast library is a fun, fashionable and youth centric #ALTBalajiOriginal ‘PM Selfiewallie’.
The show is fresh in terms of its concept and tells a story that has not been told before by any Indian digital platform. ‘PM Selfiewallie’ revolves around the life of Tanya Bansal Thakur – a fashionista, speaks in hashtags, loves her life and two doting friends and is a quintessential modern day-NRI, born and brought up in London; who through a series of interesting events becomes the PM of the country!
The show has its own comic elements but also throws light on some of the existing relevant issues and shows how a young leader would run the country if given a chance – in this case, Tanya who the entire nation and the country’s political set up thought was incapable of managing it. Tanya will be seen dealing with such issues in a fun and humorous way.
Starring Nityaami Shirke in the lead, the 7-episodic series also marks the digital debut of veteran actress Beena Banerjee. The show also features other fresh talented actors like Paaras Zutshi, Pranay Pachauri, Anjali Sivaraman, Shaan Groverr, Aditi Kalkunte and Ramakant Dayma. Directed by Ashima Chibber, of ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ fame, 3 episodes of the show are streaming now, while the remaining 4 episodes will stream on 24th April on the ALTBalaji app and the website.
