Given the reaction the teaser of the Indian version of The office has evoked, it is almost written off even before arrival. However, the recent reveal of the names behind the project generates some hope. Rohan Sippy and Debbie Rao are going to direct the series.
One of the Bollywood’s severely underrated yet high talented directors, Rohan Sippy is behind the Indian adaption of The Office. The director is known to pack similar sort of humour in his films and in general too he is a fan of the British comedies. With him on board as director, there is some hope with the actual content even though the teaser has been disastrous.
The Office is headed by Mukul Chadda who will play the iconic boss role from the original UK version. Ranvir Shorey, Gauahar Khan, Gopal Dutt, Sayandeep Sengupta, Preeti Kochar, Priyanka Setia, Abhinav Sharma and others play important roles. The BBC Studios India has created the show for Applause Entertainment.
The Office will stream online from June 28th in Hotstar Premium. It is a Hotastar special and is a third official remake of a popular worldwide series after Criminal Justice, and Hostages were coming on the streaming platform.
