INDIA: Concerned parents, a clingy boyfriend, a monotonous job and an unconventional, unsaid dream, Beanie’s life, mildly put, is chaotic. Netflix today released the trailer of its upcoming series, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag, which follows the journey of Beanie Bhatnagar, a 20-something girl, who is breaking stereotypes and running after her ambition of being a stand-up comic. Directed by Debbie Rao, Abi Varghese and Ishaan Nair, this romantic-comedy series releases on Netflix on December 4, 2020.
Bhaag Beanie Bhaag is about Beanie (played by Swara Bhasker) and her quest to find her own voice in the stand-up space, navigating love, life and her conventional but loving parents. This has all the makings of becoming a real game changer as far as India’s entertainment scene is concerned.
Instagram sensation Dolly Singh marks her acting debut as Kapi, Beanie’s bestie, and the Indian-American actor and comedian Ravi Patel, plays the role of Ravi Patel, a budding comic and Beanie’s new-found friend and confidant, both chasing a common passion. The hilarious-by-default Varun Thakur embraces the role of Arun, Beanie’s clingy but loving boyfriend, along with the evergreen Mona Ambegaonkar and Girish Kulkarni, stepping into the shoes of her parents.
What happens when Beanie flees her job and engagement in hope of pursuing a career in stand-up comedy? Find out on November 4, 2020 – only on Netflix.
