SRK’s Betaal was Big Challenge say’s Casting Director, Paragg Mehta.

As we all know Zombie thriller Betaal’s first look is out. The series has been co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Gaurav Verma and Netflix.

Paragg Mehta who is the Casting Director says, “Every project I take it up as a challenge but this one was big and became special for me when I got a call from my friend Gaurav Verma from Red Chillies as it was our first fictional horror-thriller zombie drama series. Following the vision of Director, Patrick & Co-Director, Nikhil Mahajan we routed to many villages in different parts of India keeping the nuances of all the characters in mind and we auditioned as many artists we could until we get it right and do justice to the script. Since the time people have started noticing the cast of the films and with the rise of OTT platforms more content flowing in our roles are acknowledged and we started getting credits too.”

Paragg Mehta has been praised tremendously for his excellent casting work associated in films including Bajirao Mastani, Goliyon ki Rasleela, Chakravyuh with recent Netflix’s Chopsticks as its first Indian original film, Web series Hundred for Disney Hotstar ,
