The trailer for the upcoming crime series “Killer Soup” was released by its creators on Wednesday. “Umesh and Swathi are stirring up the most bizarre crime thriller of the year- and the secrets are about to boil over!” reads the caption on the video that the over-the-top platform Netflix posted on Instagram. AVAILABLE NOW: THE KILLER SOUP TRAILER.
The protagonist of the show is Swathi Shetty, an aspiring chef who wants her soup to be enjoyed by everyone. After a single misstep, a series of mishaps and desperate attempts at cover-ups land her and her companion in hot water.
“For the first time in my career, I will be playing a double role, both starkly different from each other,” revealed actor Manoj Bajpayee, who will portray Umesh, Swathi’s lover.
I had faith in the directing skills of Abhishek Chaubey, Netflix’s cooperation, and an exceptional ensemble that brought characters to life to create an uncanny pot-boiler that was unmatched and based on an unintentional crime. Killer Soup is fundamentally a multi-genre crime thriller that is meant to be enjoyed by anyone.”
Actor Konkana Sensharma, who played Swathi Shetty, said of the role: “Being Swathi Shetty was a unique experience for me since the character has depth, darkness, and a lot of punch. It was a joy to work on the series with a group of outstanding actors and longtime partners Netflix and Abhishek Chaubey.
A peek of our wacky world against the backdrop of a tranquil village can be seen in the trailer. The series is laced with moments of tension that leave you wondering, “Will she or won’t she get caught and will the soup boil over?” I’m excited to see what the public thinks after watching Killer Soup.”
Key characters are played by Manoj Bajpayee, Konkona Sensharma, Nasser, Sayaji Shinde, Lal, Anbuthasan, Anula Navlekar, and Kani Kusruti in the Abhishek Chaubey-directed series.
“Killer Soup,” which is produced by Honey Trehan and Chetana Kowshik, will debut on Netflix on January 11, 2024.
