OHO Gujarati, India’s premium Gujarati content streaming platform has launched the First Look of its maiden web series ‘Vitthal Teedi’. Starring Pratik Gandhi of Scam 1992 fame, the web series follows the story of a small-time gambler who rises to fame exploring the highs and lows of his life through games of cards. Set in the early 80s, Vitthal Teedi was filmed in January 2021.
The first look of the series shows Pratik Gandhi in a completely different avatar than his previous work. Also, it ends with a punch line by him which has become Pratik Gandhi’s forte now. The overall look and feel of the motion poster along with its music will surely make the series an interesting watch once it releases in May. The first look also reveals that the trailer will be releasing on May 1st, 2021 which now will be awaited with bated breath.
Series star Pratik Gandhi has played a prominent role in Gujarati theatre and cinema over the last decade but his big break came in 2020 in the form of a biographical series Scam 1992, where he won universal acclaim for his portrayal of stockbroker Harshad Mehta.
“Vitthal Teedi” also features the talents of director Abhishek Jain, the celebrated Gujarati director responsible for films like Kevi Rite Jaish (2012), Bey Yaar (2014), and an upcoming Hindi film with Maddock Films starring Rajkumaar Rao and Kriti Sanon. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Gandhi to come back to Gujarati cinema with Jain and Cineman Productions who he had made his debut with.
