Talking about the show, an elated director Pushpdeep Bhardwaj shares, “With so many thrillers and crime shows being made, I was keen on making a dramatic love story with music at its core- something that could stand out. Through a lot of research and a lot more conversations, Ranjish Hi Sahi came into being. An attempt to bring out complex human emotions, based in the Golden Era of the film industry: the glorious 70’s. Recreating this world amidst today’s testing times, was nothing short of miraculous, and this wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of all those at Jio Studios. Now that the show is finally ready, I am beyond thrilled and can’t wait for the audiences to witness our labour of love!”
Ranjish Hi Sahi premieres on Voot Select on January 13.
