Raaj Shaandilyaa is making his debut in the world of OTT with The Great Wedding Of Munnes. Raj said about this that this is his first project with Jio Studios and debut in OTT. There are so many crime and thriller shows being made on OTT platforms today that I thought, a comedy show should be made on the scale of a Bollywood film. Our aim is to change this trend and entertain the audience.

Abhishek said about the show- I am always on the lookout for such characters who challenge me. I was looking for comedy scripts and this is a really funny story. When the makers approached me to play Munnes, I was blown away. We have started shooting for the show in Rohtak and I am really looking forward to it.

Sharing the information of the series on Twitter, Abhishek wrote – Munnes is eager to climb the mare, but the googly of life is driving him away in every state of India. Will Munnej’s marriage happen, will know soon.

Barkha Singh is a well-known face in the world of OTT and has appeared in many web series. Barkha said about the series – I am happy to be a part of this very important series. My character is very funny and I am looking forward to start shooting. Sharing screen space with Abhishek for the first time. I’m sure it’s going to be a lot of fun.
