Zee5 kickstarted 2022 with Kaun Banegi Shikharwati, which was in partnership with Applause Entertainment. The series managed to do decently with the viewers. Up next, the two leading content companies have collaborated yet again for another series, Mithya.
Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with Rose Audio Visual Production and directed by Rohan Sippy, Mithya is a 6-part series features a compelling star cast led by Huma Qureshi and Avantika Dassani and supported by Parambrata Chatterjee, Rajit Kapur and Samir Soni in pivotal roles. Set in Darjeeling, the series navigates through the conflicted relationships between a Hindi literature professor Juhi, played by Huma Qureshi and her student Rhea, played by Avantika Dassani. What sparks off as a classroom conflict, soon spirals out of control, triggering an adverse psychological combat between the two women leading to fatal consequences and shocking revelations.
Rohan Sippy said,
“Mithya is a pulpy psychological thriller that delves into the human mind. Hopefully it will leave you rattled, shaken and excited. It has been a pleasure to work with a dear friend Goldie Behl & Rose, and collaborate with a great team of talented actors, writers, technicians and of course to work once again with the trailblazing Applause Entertainment”.
Mithya, an original adaption of 2019 series, Cheat, marks the debut of Avantika Dassani, who is the daughter of actress Bhagyashree and sister of actor, Abhimanyu Dassani.
