Award-winning content house, MnM Talkies, India’s hub for quality audio content by actor/director Mantra, unveils a first-of-its-kind audio drama series – AND NOW LIVE, in collaboration with Stone Paper Stories.
AND NOW LIVE
A band trying to find their voice. A manager trying to get them there. And an arranged marriage proposal gone wrong, this series is a pleasant combination of music and a coming-of-age story of artists trying to find themselves. The first season of the show follows the plot of a singer-songwriter duo and their managers trying to get that big break in the music industry.
AND NOW LIVE is a podcast, written & directed by Stone Paper Stories, founded by Shiv Tandan, an award-winning writer-director and founder of a bustling arts space, The Castiko Space, based in Mumbai and produced by Ragini Tandan, a singer-songwriter, best known for her smash hit Lamberghini.
Featuring and following the story of four friends Nima (played by Pallavi Paranjpe), Dan (played by Varun Tiwari), Chirag (played by Anuj Rampal) and Manya (played by Rhea Menon), the intention of the show is to illuminate the profound challenges faced by independent artists within the realm of music industry. The show does not only depict the musical journey of the characters but also features some beautiful original compositions “Aalsi Sa Pyaar” and “Taqdaan” sung by the actors themselves.
Mantra shared the launch of the podcast with his fans on social media “An audio series that has won my heart for its sheer freshness. I couldnt stop listening once I started, and fell in love with each Character. And the songs are to die for. I am extremely happy to present this beautiful audio series to our listeners,” Founder/Director, MnM Talkies.
