Faisal Shaikh aka Mr Faisu is living what is possibly the dream of all his fellow social media influencers. The 26-year-old from Dharavi, who had over a million followers on TikTok, is gearing up for his acting debut in ALT Balaji’s upcoming web series Bang Baang: The Sounds of Crime.
Bang Baang is an action-thriller starring Faisal and Ruhi Singh in the lead. The first impression that one gets from the show’s trailer, that dropped yesterday, is of the typical Bollywood masala potboilers that were a staple in the ’80s and the ’90s and, not surprisingly, continue to find a steady audience even today. One can expect plenty of high-octane but too-good-to-be-true action sequences, corny dialogues and of course, romance. If you’re a sucker for pulpy entertainment, or are a die-hard fan of Mr Faisu, then add this to your watchlist.
Bang Baang will stream from Monday, January 25 on ALT Balaji.
