Actress Mandira Bedi has been roped in to play a mafia lord's wife in her next web series Smoke.
Mandira came into the limelight through her roles in TV shows like Shanti and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
"I have worked for both the platforms- TV and digital. Online, I have already worked in short films like Phir Ek Baar, Deuce, The Gift and now the web series, Smoke will be releasing soon. The audience for the digital platform is growing. Online content takes less time and it gives artists to serve something which is out of the box for the viewers," Mandira said in a statement.
"The content and shows done on TV will always be a bit safer and conservative. There are daily soaps that take 25 to 28 days a month. Time commitment goes on for years," she added.
Mandira will team up with actors Jim Sarbh, Kalki Koechlin, Tom Alter and Neil Bhoopalam for Smoke, which will have 10 to 12 episodes in total.
