4 REASONS TO WATCH NETFLIX’s ‘CALL MY AGENT : BOLLYWOOD’

There is one thing about Bollywood – you can hate it or love it, but you surely can’t ignore it. With the recent blizzard in the Indian film industry and a constant eye of scrutiny that we have, ‘Call my Agent! Bollywood’ is a blatant depiction of its core. Though it finds its creative roots in the French series ‘Dix Pour Cent’, it has certainly got its appeal. Ayush Mehra, Aahana Kumra, Rajat Kapoor & Soni Razdan are the focal characters (agents) with a vital presence of Radhika Seth. So, here are 4 reasons to add this show to your binge list:

 1. IT’S A BOLLYWOOD BUFFET!

The film industry, star-making, and celebrity culture are something that we can never get bored of. This show presents a whole buffet of Bollywood and its celebrities, be it Dia Mirza, Lara Dutta, Lillet Dubey, Ela Arun, or Farah Khan. The constant influx of well-known faces gives this story a freshness and perpetual novelty.

 2. STORY OF STAR-MAKERS

This show is a very raw portrayal of the not-so-glamourous world behind the silver screen. This shows a place where people work their a** off to convert celebrities into stars and at times sustain their diminishing brand image. It’s quite refreshing to watch the inside story of a universe that no one actually gets completely!

 3. HARD-HITTING REALITY CHECKS

 The story touches a lot of underrated truths and issues that people in Bollywood face. Be it the ‘age factor’ with actresses, constant tussle amid rival agencies, script wars, celebrity tantrums, emotion amid the plastic world, or financial crunches. We are forced to see the reality behind always invariably smiling and jolly faces.

 4. VIBRANT CAST & CHARACTERS

 Ayush Mehra, a well-known face from YouTube with inherited charm within him. Aahana Kumra, the strong, blunt, raw, lesbian protagonist. Rajat Kapoor, a seasoned, veteran, street smart agent. Soni Razdan, subtle, experienced, battle-scarred non-agent, but a ‘star maker. The story also brings in a lot of interesting talents like Radhika Seth, who has complicated dynamics with her father.
