Talking about Dillogical in detail, Nupur Nagpal, who plays the role of Jinal in the series, shares, “I have read a lot of youth-based show scripts before, but this one came across as a lot more wholesome when I first read its script. That’s because it is not just about friends; the stakes are very high. The story is set at the destination wedding of a family friend, where everyone’s family members are present, and the incidents that transpire there are very interesting. All the characters are different from each other. They face some or other emotional conflict. But, I think the writers and creators have done a commendable job with the way they all get tied up together at the end.”

She further adds how this series is a cut above other shows, saying, “There is a lot of content on OTT to choose from, but what makes Dillogical stand out is the fact that it is a feel-good show. There are a lot of thrillers, biopics, dramas, and crime stories, but sometimes we just want a wholesome, fun-loving show about the youth and their feelings. That’s exactly what makes Dillogical extremely special in my eyes.”

The series conveys that life itself is full of experiences and ideas”, Vishal Vashishtha on Hustlers- Jugaad Ka Khel

Mumbai, February 10th, 2024: – Amazon miniTV – Amazon’s free video streaming service, recently premiered its entrepreneurial drama, Hustlers- Jugaad Ka Khel, which is being applauded for bringing an inspiring narrative to the forefront. The series follows the story of Sanjay Sharma, a street-smart and determined small-town boy.

Vishal Vashishtha

That’s what impressed me the most when I first read the script. Coming from a humble family background with no film connections, quitting a secure job to pursue acting was a major decision for me. While relatives and family friends always nudged my parents to ensure that I pursued a more traditional and secure career path, it was my parents who stood by my decision as my rock. So, when I read the script, I knew I wanted to be a part of this journey.”

Adding to this, Vishal Vashishtha, the main protagonist portraying the role of Sanjay Sharma elaborated on what sets the series apart, shedding light on its intriguing narrative. “The story is unique because it goes beyond the startup, focusing on a person’s journey and experiences. The series conveys that life itself is full of experiences and ideas. One has to be aware and present in the moment to identify it. And then it is followed by our perseverance, courage, and dedication to achieve the desired goal,” he stated.
