Shriya Pilgaonkar was last seen in her Hindi film debut as Shahrukh Khan's love interest in Fan. Some time ago her short film Jai Mata Di with Shiv Pandit released and she was appreciated for her work. Shirya is now going to be seen in a web show called 'Mirzapur' produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani for a global online platform where she stars opposite Ali Fazal in the lead.
When asked, Shriya said "I am thrilled to be part of Mirzapur and to be working with Excel. We have already started shooting in Varanasi. The cast is fantastic and the character I play is completely different from what I have done before. Ali and I have been friends since college, so it's even more special that we are working together.”
Mirzapur is a Gangster drama directed by the makers of Inside Edge and is currently being shot in Varanasi. The show also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Vikrant Massey
