Mumbai: Riding high on the success of her last critically-acclaimed show Break Point featuring Tennis legends Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi on ZEE5, filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is currently busy with the shoot of her debut web series, Faadu.
After wrapping up the first schedule of the show in December last year, the brilliant storyteller, who has directed films like Nil Battey Sannata and Bareilly Ki Barfi, has started the next schedule of the web show in Serbia recently.
Starring Pavail Gulati and Saiyami Kher, Faadu is an intense poetic love-story between two different-thinking characters.
The filmmaker took to Instagram recently to share the update about the Serbia schedule of the show by posting a picture of the clapboard mentioning #gratitude. She also posted a smiling picture of her standing next to the camera with a nice caption, “Create your own light with your own story to tell.”
Produced by Studio Next, the show will stream on SonyLIV.
In an interview with the Indian Express, Ashwiny had said, “As a storyteller, I constantly challenge myself to bring new insightful characters that take the audience to moments of introspection. Faadu is one such unconventional character-driven story, which I am eagerly waiting for the world to experience.”
In November, 2021, the Panga filmmaker had shared a monochromatic picture of Pavail and Saiyami from the set. “A glimpse of love @pavailgulati | @saiyami #faadu”. Earlier, Ashwiny had also shared a pic with Pavail and Saiyami and wrote, “In the rhythm of words a world is created by humans who see a poem in the characters and then life in a story begins. @pavailgulati & @saiyami in #Faadu My debut webseries & 10th long format story including 3 shorts.:) This one is going to be very special with Santosh Narayanan @musicsanthosh musical,” she had captioned the image.
Besides Faadu, Ashwiny is also co-producing a few projects. Recently, the filmmaker has joined the advisory board of a women-only platform called Eve World.
