Anjali Barot, who essays the role of Vanshika in the series, recently shared her reason for being drawn to its storyline. She expressed, “While the story is set against the backdrop of the start-up boom in 2010, I think it truly resonates with anyone who has challenged stereotypes and dared to take the plunge to pursue their passion. 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.

Produced by Rainshine Entertainment and starring Vishal Vashishtha, Samir Kochhar, Maharshi Dave, Anjali Barot, and Anurag Arora in pivotal roles, Hustlers – Jugaad Ka Khel is streaming exclusively on Amazon miniTV for free, available on Amazon’s shopping app, Fire TV, and Play Store.
