After gaining much applause and adulations for its first season in 2019, the premium OTT platform Eros Now, has announced the release of a very special Quarantine edition of its original series titled ‘Metro Park’. Five episodes of 3 to 5 minutes each, promises to take fans on an exciting joyride as it showcases a fascinating story that revolves around the members of a Gujarati family settled in New Jersey, USA.
Over the years, Indian culture has made its presence felt global. Regardless of which part of the world we are in, our deep-rooted values have given birth to many Indian neighborhoods. The distinctive and individual characteristics of Indians settled abroad not only capture everyone’s attention but often our desi community is seen as a catalyst for some quirkiness. Art imitates life, and that comes across in this captivating series starring Ranvir Shorey, Purbi Joshi, Omi Vaidya, Vega Tamotia, and Pitobash Tripathy amongst others. The first season received several accolades and popularised the concept of e-pooja in many places, setting an all-new trend.
‘Metro Park – Quarantine’ Edition will see residents of Metro Park in quarantine mode, however, COVID fails to curb the spirit of its cheerful & chirpy residents even in such challenging times. In this quarantine special edition one can witness, how despite staying indoors, Kalpesh and gang adapt to the new ways of living which has become the new normal and stay cautious, creative, and maybe even a little calm.
This quarantine edition has had actors shoot their portions independently at their residence. Right from Payal taking online dance sessions to Kalpesh trying his hands at cooking – there is a lot that in the series that will keep you glued to the screen.
Speaking up about the show, Ridhima Lulla, Chief Content Officer, Eros Group says, “The amount of love Metro Park’s first season garnered last year, it got all of us at Eros Now really excited to put together a special Quarantine Edition of the show.
