Elaborating on how the entire show was shot in lockdown, co-writer an d Fukrey Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba informs, “Since the show talks about internet and social media, the bottom line is that we are connected yet a bit disconnected with each other. We don’t want to comment on internet being good or bad, but just want the audience to experience and relate to the stories depicted in the show. The audience will be able to resonate with the interesting characters because it actually comes from us only. The show features actors talking to their computer screens rather than talking to a person sitting next to them. Interestingly, the show got greenlit with SonyLIV online only. The show about internet was approved on internet.” Produced by Dinesh Vijan and created and written by Amit Babbar and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, Chutzpah is directed by Simarpreet Singh, and stars Fukrey boys Varun Sharma and Manjot Singh. It'll premiere on SonyLIV on 23rd July.
