‘Killer Soup’ team on how they cooked a broth that blends in ‘different moods’

Mumbai, January 04, 2024.

Director Abhishek Chaubey says he wanted to create something that was dark but funny and he found the perfect recipe for it in “Killer Soup”, a genre-blending series headlined by his favourite actors Manoj Bajpayee and Konkona Sensharma.The eight-episode crime show, set to premiere on Netflix on January 11, revolves around Sensharma’s Swathi Shetty, an aspiring chef who wants nothing but the world to enjoy her paya soup. But an accident sets off a series of mishaps and hasty cover-ups that land her and her lover in hot soup.

Chaubey, who has worked with both Bajpayee and Sensharma in different capacities, said “Killer Soup” gave him the opportunity to explore the long format medium through a unique story.
