Actress Patralekhaa is all set to team up with her "Citylights" co-star Rajkummar Rao for the web series based on the life of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
The 27-year-old actress will play the role of an elitist Bengali in the ALT Balaji online streaming show, which has been directed by Hansal Mehta.
"I am thrilled to be a part of the project. Recently, I happened to discuss Bose with a friend, who wrote a book on him, and now I am doing a role in a show based on him. I'm happier to do the show, as I am playing a Bengali," says Patralekhaa.
Talking about working with Mehta again, the actress says, "Hansal sir has never cast me without following a procedure. During 'Citylights', I gave an audition and this time, I did a look test. It is always a delight to work with him.
"He allows actors to use their imagination and take a scene forward. I miss this [freedom] in my space of work."
The trio will work together for the first time after "Citylights".
The actor is also excited about working with the "Trapped" actor again and says, "Getting to work with Raj as a co-star is exciting. He brings in so much more to a scene, that it develops it into something else. I am looking forward to this collaboration."
Although Patralekhaa feels the "web is the future", there are many "challenges that we need to overcome to reach the optimum level".
The web series premiers on Independence Day.
