Hiten Tejwani undoubtedly is one of the most popular and loved actors from the Indian television industry. This handsome actor started his career with Balaji Telefilms’ Ghar Ek Mandir and garnered millions of fans especially from his roles in the daily soaps Kutumb and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. The actor who was last seen in the popular reality show Bigg Boss 11, will now be making his debut in the world of web series. Hiten will be playing the lead role in Eros Now’s web series titled The Investigation.
Web Series Debut
The web series is a murder mystery in which he plays the role of a Mumbai Crime Branch officer. Television actress Leena Jumani will be playing the role of his wife in the series. The actor shared the poster of the series on his Instagram handle and the message along with the picture read as follows, “Super excited to announce the poster of my newest digital series, #TheInvestigation! Watch out for the trailer coming soon on @erosnow”
Giving details of the web series, Hiten revealed in his statement, “The show exposes a murder mystery and revolves around my role. The several twists and turns in the plot interested me to be a part of the crime thriller and it was a different and enjoyable experience shooting for this short-format content.”
He further added, “I am sure audiences will be glued to the show and will enjoy watching it as much as we did filming it.”
All the episodes of this web series will start streaming on Eros Now app from 6 January.
‘Kalank’: A Dharma Production Film
Hiten will also be seen on the silver screen this year in Abhishek Verman directorial Kalank. The film is being produced under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Production and Hiten has Bollywood biggies Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur as his co-stars. While Hiten has done quite a few Bollywood films already, this is going to be his biggest Bollywood venture so far.
This hottie from the telly world had earlier shared his excitement about working on this project (Kalank) in one of his interviews with a leading entertainment daily. The actor was quoted as saying, “The excitement level is definitely high because this is the kind of project which I was really looking forward. It’s a very good project to be associated with.”
Hiten also spoke about how every new project gets him slightly nervous every time with this time (before he started shooting for Kalank) being no different, “Honestly, when it comes to good work, I want to become an example for many people. I have been in this industry for so many years and still I get nervous whenever I take up a new project. With Kalank too, I am nervous but excited too. All I want to concentrate is on doing good work and be an example to young actors.”
He also maintained that he will not quit television completely, “It will be very wrong in my part to say that I don’t want to do television; I owe my career to TV. As of now, I am occupied for few months and hence cannot do a daily soap; however I will never quit TV.”
In his recent interview with Pinkvilla, the actor was whether he prefers big budget films with small roles or vice versa, to which he reacted, “Though I did movies earlier, Karan’s film is different. It is a step up for me, career-wise. It will have a wider reach than the movies I did. As for your question, I would like to balance both kinds of films. There are many young and new directors, who have fabulous concepts and story ideas, and this is why I do their films. And the bottom line is, when I was a newcomer, someone gave me a chance too. So in a way, I am paying it forward.”
Kalank will be released in April this year.
With two very exciting projects in progress already, we are sure the fans would get to see a lot more of Hiten Tejwani this year, and this sure is going to be a bonanza for all his followers.
