Soup Webseries OTT Release Date, Trailer, Star Cast, Plot

Netflix, the most popular streaming service, is always releasing new content for its subscribers. Whether it is a movie or a web series, it always presents a variety of daring content that distinguishes the streamer from others.

In India, where web series are more popular than big-budget movies, Netflix never disappoints its users and continues to introduce fresh stories.

This time, it’s a new dark comedy series called Soup. Manoj Bajpayee, a notable and multiple-award-winning actor from Bollywood, will play the series’ principal character.

Manoj, as we all know, is no stranger to the world of OTT. After two seasons of the blockbuster Amazon Prime Hindi spy thriller The Family Man, developed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., he will return to OTT with this new series.

Soup Web Series Announced

The series’ creators made the series’ formal announcement with a short behind-the-scenes video clip. It gives us a taste of an unorthodox drama that will bring a healthy dose of dark comedy and suspense.

It begins with a vista of majestic mountains shrouded in dense fog, followed by an outside property nameplate bearing the inscription Dickinson Lane 7, Shetty Villa.

Aside from that, the behind-the-scenes video shows lead actors Manoj Bajpayee and Konkona Sen Sharma, as well as director Abhishek Chaubey, cooking up a storm.

Soup Cast & Crew

Manoj Bajpayee will play Prabhakar Shetty, while famous actress Konkona Sen Sharma will portray his wife Swathi Shetty. It will also star well-known South Indian actors Naseer and Lal, as well as versatile actor Savaji Shinde.

The series is helmed by noted filmmaker Abhishek Chaubey, who has already produced numerous blockbuster films and shows like Ishqiya, Dedh Ishqiya, Udta Punjab, Sonchiriya, Raat Akeli Hai, and Ray. He co-wrote the series’ screenplay alongside Unaiza Merchant, Anant Tripathi, and Harshad Nalawade.

This is Chaubey’s third collaboration with Netflix, following the crime thriller film Raat Akeli Hai and the anthology drama web series Ray. Manoj Bajpayee collaborates with the filmmaker for the third time, following Ray and Sonchiriya.

Honey Trehan and Chetana Kowshk’s Macguffin Pictures produce this dark-comedy crime series for Netflix. In the following days, we should expect an announcement about the series’ premiere date as well as a teaser/trailer.

Plot Of  Soup Series

The series is based on a true story of an inept cook named Swathi Shetty (Konkona Sen Sharma) who aspires to run her own restaurant and her suspicious husband Prabhakar (Manoj Bajpayee).

Prabhakar, instead of assisting her in fulfilling her ambition of owning a restaurant, dismisses her and casts doubt on her. However, fate provides her with an opportunity to realise her dream, but things do not go as planned and are disrupted by some amusing characters and amateur villains.

This teaser appears to be intriguing:
