Potluck cast: Theatre and film actors Cyrus Sahukar and Ira Dubey will be seen together along with an ensemble cast in the upcoming web series Potluck. The show is all about loving your family and trying to bring all the members together when they drift away. The trailer of Potluck was launched on August 12 and by the looks of it, it promises to be a light-hearted comedy that highlights the importance of family bonding and togetherness.
In the trailer we see Govind Shastri, played by Jatin Sial, wishing to connect with his three grown-up children as he lands up in a hospital. The father wants to bring his family closer after his retirement, as he did not have time for them while they were growing up. But is this the only reason why Shastri plans a get-together for his family? Or is he hiding something from his children?
The series features actors Jatin Sial, Kitu Gidwani, Shikha Talsania, Cyrus Sahukar and Ira Dubey as leads. We catch glimpses of Harman Singha, Saloni Khanna and Siddhant Karnick also in prominent roles. The family drama is releasing soon on OTT on September 10.
Sahukar plays the eldest son, Vikrant Shastri, in Potluck, who has a laid-back personality with unconventional choices. Speaking about his role in the show, the celebrated 90s VJ, said that the making of the show has been an incredible experience for him. “The narrative of the show is the collective beauty that people with diverse thoughts and ideas bring out, despite being part of one community,” the 41-year-old actor added. The actor-host has worked in notable films like Rang De Basanti, Delhi-6 and Aisha. His most recent work was Mind the Malhotras, Moti – The Dog and Karma – The Cat.
Theatre and film actor Ira Dubey, plays the role of Akansha, Sahukar’s wife in the series. She will be seen as a mother of three kids who wants to have a balanced life. She has played pivotal roles in films like Aisha, Turning 30, M Cream and Dear Zindagi.
Popular Bollywood actor Shikha Talsania, who also marked her Marathi debut with the upcoming series Shantit Kranti just this year, will play Shastri’s daughter. Talsania — daughter of veteran actor Tiku Talsania — is best known for starring in the film Veere Di Wedding alongside Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhasker.
