With the classic song “Tu Hi Re” by AR Rahman from Mani Ratnam’s Bombay (1995) playing in the background, the 142-second promo video maintains a brisk pace, offering only subtle glimpses into Killer Soup’s dramatic and vibrant world that revolves around Swathi Shetty (Konkona Sensharma), an aspiring chef who desires nothing more than for the world to relish her paya soup, her husband Prabhakar and lover Umesh (both played by Manoj Bajpayee), without divulging too much.

According to an official statement, the series is about a rapid turn of events that follow amateur villains, amateur heroes, and amateurs in betweens in the fictitious town of Mainjur.

Festive offer

Talking about the series, actor Manoj Bajpayee said, “For the first time in my career, I will be playing a double role, both starkly different from each other. I trusted Abhishek Chaubey’s directorial prowess, Netflix as collaborators, and a stellar cast that breathed life into characters to create a surreal pot-boiler unlike any other stemming from an accidental crime. At its heart, Killer Soup is a crime thriller that blends multiple genres, making it a delicious serving that everyone can enjoy.”
