It was earlier announced that Mirzapur actors Ali Fazal and Shriya Pilgaonkar had joined hands for a Netflix film. While the duo was hard at work while shooting for their second project together, the production seems to be moving very fast and a release date has already been announced. The pair’s forthcoming venture House Arrest will release on Netflix on November 15. It also features Jim Sarbh and Barkha Singh. House Arrest is jointly directed by Shashanka Ghosh and Samit Basu, while Trilok Malhotra is producing it. It follows the story of a man (Fazal) who is trapped in his own fears.
As the story progresses, he locks himself at home, only to find that while he can restrict his interaction with the world, he can’t keep the world from entering his domain. Fazal feels House Arrest has a fantastic script. "It's witty, very fresh and for me, selfishly, the character is very arched and layered. So it was a fun time on sets to play this part,” he said earlier.
Fazal added, “Even though it is a comedy, it is complex and I got to go on set every day and do something new and fresh even though it was all one place.” However, he added that working with Shriya added more fun to the project for him. "Working the second time with her was a natural comfort that just came without trying. Also, Shashanka Ghosh is a genius along with Samit Basu who is the brains behind this venture. They both have such clarity on what they want and how they want it. While they are the leaders of the free world, they also allowed us actors to have a free hand to work with our creative liberties too," he concluded. We’re sure they will once again share a sizzling chemistry on-screen!
