The latest offering from Applause Entertainment is the premium digital drama series ‘Rasbhari’, headlined by the powerhouse of talent - Swara Bhasker. This coming of age love story set in the Hindi heartland traces the story of a class 11th student and his growing infatuation for his English teacher.
Fresh off her sizzling success of ‘Veere Di Wedding’, Swara will essay the role of the enigmatic English teacher “Shanoo-madam”, while Ayushman Saxena will play the besotted student “Nand”.
Sameer Nair, CEO of Applause Entertainment, said, “I cannot praise Shantanu’s sparkling writing enough – with his delectable turn of phrase, delightful local dialect and wicked sense of humour, every character in this ‘coming of age’ love story comes alive. Headlining a terrific cast of actors, Swara plays the stern English Teacher who is the object of attraction for not only our young hero but for the entire male population of Meerut. Director Nikhil Bhat and producer Tanveer Bookwala have truly created a gem.”
Swara Bhasker, says, “I am always looking out for roles which challenge me and satisfy my pursuit for creativity. ‘Rasbhari’ has been an amazing experience. With ‘Shanoo’ I was able to enjoy a role rarely seen on screen and I truly hope that her story is able to shine a light on today’s society.”
Tanveer Bookwala, Founder – Creative Director of Ding Entertainment, commented – ‘'We’re very glad to associate with Sameer Nair for this exciting project. Apart from featuring Swara in a never seen before avatar, this new-fangled narrative will introduce audiences to characters you’d love to meet, for real.”
‘Rasbhari’ will be streaming soon and available for viewers to enjoy.
