When asked about his take on how actors are now opting for digital series, Atul Kulkarni said, “I have been working with the digital platform for the last three years and I believe the format that it provides is very special. It is not cinema, it is not daily soaps, it is a finite episode kind of a platform and I treat them as an extended movie.”
Atul Kulkarni further added, “The extend that digital platform provides is not only limited to one season. It gives an actor the opportunity to resume again if the audiences like it. As an actor, it is a great opportunity to develop their characters, rectify mistakes, give length and space to it which one doesn’t enjoy in movies.”
Directed by Aditya Sarpotkar, The Raikar Case is a joint production of Sukesh Motwani, Persis Singanporai and Mautik Tolia. The story of The Raikar Case revolves around the life of an elite family. The crime thriller unveils the dark secrets that were kept hidden to protect the prestige of the family.
The Raikar Case’s plot revolves around the suicide of the youngest member of the family. However, it is later declared as murder by police officials.
