The Abhishek Choubey-directorial television series ‘Killer Soup’ is set to premiere on Netflix from September 11th. Bollywood actors Manoj Bajpayee and Konkona Sen will star as the male and female lead among an ensemble cast that consists of other prominent figures such as Mohanlal, Nasser, Sayaji Shinde and Anula Navelkar. The crew is tight lipped about what the series entails although there are speculations that the film is based on the infamous Swathi Reddy case wherein a woman killed her husband and attempted to showcase her boyfriend as her husband having undergone plastic surgery. 

Konkana Sen Sharma will essay the role of Swathi Shetty in the series. Speaking about the role she said, “Swathi is a character I’ve embraced with open arms – a woman driven by an unwavering determination to create not just the best paya soup but a life she can call her own. Inherently caring and loving, her complexities reveal a character who has served others selflessly, and, in turn, has dutifully taken care of her family. Now, at a pivotal point in her life, she’s embarked on a path that is dark, convoluted, and terrible – a journey not for the soft-hearted. What she didn’t know, and what I discovered while portraying her, is that no one could walk this path better than her. It’s a role that encompasses a mix of emotions and depths. For me, this role challenged me in the best ways and allowed me to explore the grey-ness of this character. She’s so grey – that we used to jokingly call her Swathi Shady.”
