The web series ‘Hawa Badle Hassu’ is all set to stream on SonyLiv. The series in its season one boasts of a stellar cast led by Chandan Roy Sanyal, Smita Tambe (Singham Returns fame), Anissa Ani , Zachary Coffin and Vikram Kochchar (Sacred Games, Sumit Samhal Lega fame). Hawa Badle Hassu is an Environmental sci-fi thriller which has equal proportions of social comedy elements and full-blown Sci-Fi intrigue. Shot in Mumbai suburbs and virgin locations at Vaitarna (Maharashtra), and co-written and produced by Protiqe Mojoomdar, the web series Hawa Badle Hassu , according to its director duo Saptaraj and Siva, sets out to dish out a strong message on environment sustainability and critical lifestyle changes, through interesting and futuristic storytelling. Chandan plays the titular Professor Hasmukh Pandey a.k.a Hassu, who rides an eco- friendly rickshaw, spreads the message on environment conservation to his unassuming passengers. Chandan Roy Sanyal who is shooting for a Bengali film called Deep Six says that he is also equally excited about his forthcoming films like Jabariya Jodi. Says Chandan who is a perfectionist as well as a thinking actor who learnt riding an auto rickshaw in Versova from a rickshaw driver in just two hours without possessing a license, “Hassu is an environment-conscious rickshawala, who drives a CNG-fuelled rickshaw, which is the cleanest fuel and yet he inhales all the poisonous emissions throughout the day like any other rickshawala. He has turned his rickshaw into an eco-friendly zone filled with plants and oxygen cylinders. Hassu’s mission in life is to educate people about the environment. Hence, he chats up his passengers with a hope to make them more aware. It was challenging for me as an actor to shoot almost 70% of the web series inside a rickshaw as its driver. I am happy that I got an opportunity to play a nuanced character that is also quite quirky in Hawa Badle Hassu”. By the way, Chandan Roy Sanyal who has directed a couple of short films earlier, told me that he is all set to write a script and turn director of a feature film.
