Zee5's next Marathi original blends drugs and theatre
Today, 5th November 2018 marks the joyous occasion of Marathi Rangbhoomi Day, in other words, the celebration of Marathi Theatre. ZEE5, India’s #2 OTT platform takes this opportunity to launch their opulent Original Marathi venture - ‘Sex, Drugs and Theatre’, that delves into and celebrates Marathi drama to its fullest. The series narrates the journey of 6 college students who are forcefully made to work on a prestigious drama competition that completely changes their life.
Directed, produced and written by National Award-winning film-maker, Sujay Dahake, who is known for his ambitious filmmaking in terms of narrative and subjects. After creating diverse films like SHALA (school drama), Ajoba (based on true events wildlife film) and PHUNTROO (Science Fiction), Sujay is now looking forward to venture into the digital space with ZEE5’s ‘Sex, Drugs & Theatre’.
The 10 episode series will feature a fairly new talented star cast with a script that is edgy and never been attempted before in Marathi mainstream media.
Creator, Sujay Dahake said, “I am glad to associate with ZEE5 on my first digital venture. ‘Sex, Drugs &Theatre’ is an intense college drama. College theatre competitions has always been dear to the Marathi audience. Also, sex & drugs are a huge taboo in our society. So, what happens when these worlds collide? The show will portray Marathi youth in a never seen before manner – cool, vibrant, raw, yet rooted. The show will definitely stand out because no other content has portrayed Marathi youth dynamics in a flamboyant & relatable yet aspirational manner. The star cast will be announced in the
days to come.”
Written, produced and directed by Sujay Dahake under his banner, Pune Film Company, Sex, Drugs &
Theatre will go on floors soon.
