Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma has donned the cap of a producer and made her much-awaited digital debut with her upcoming series Paatal Lok. Paatal Lok starring Jaideep Ahlawat and Abhishek Banerjee in the lead had gone on to grab a lot of attention on social media with its intriguing trailer and the gritty concept. Now, it has just been a few days since the Sudip Sharma directorial thriller series Paatal Lok released and it's already making the headlines for all the right reasons. Meanwhile, many other users have also taken the opportunity to dish out rib-tickling memes and jokes on Paatal Lok.
The show, Paatal Lok produced by Anushka Sharma, is touted to be a perfect blend of gore and suspense combined with mythological allegories. Not only people have been showering plaudits on the excellent star cast which includes Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi, Gul Panag, Swastika Mukherjee amongst others but also comparing it with Netflix’s Sacred Games.
According to media sources, the creator and co-writer of the series, Sudip Sharma reportedly opened up about the storyline of the series to a media outlet and revealed that it was first inspired by Tarun Tejpal’s 2009 novel, The Story of My Assassins.
As per media reports, the story of Anushka Sharma's-backed show, Paatal Lok retook the show's basic storyline from rape-accused Tarun Tejpal's story and fictionalized it further. According to reports, the much-appreciated series, Paatal Lok, however, is told from the viewpoint of a cop which is being played by Jaideep Ahlawat, unlike Tejpal's story which spoke about how five suspects were arrested for allegedly plotting his murder. Elucidating further about the storyline and to what extend did the makers go beyond the original story, Sudip also reportedly said that the book was only a small portion of the story.
Sudip further added that only a single plot of the story of Paatal Lok was taken from the book and then later the writers explored several new angles and avenues from it. As per media reports, Sudip said that several other factors have been added to the story. Sudip reportedly said that the entire creative team decided to intricately explore the life of a cop. Also, he added that the author of the book was also not involved in the development or production of the show at all.
