AltBalaji’s web show, Cartel, has been in news for a lot of reasons. The show, earlier titled as The Family Man, had Vivek Oberoi and Samir Soni with a few more actors. However, with its original director, Pulkit's fallout with the production house, the web series went on hold until Ekta revived it again with Rithvik and Tanuj Virwani as leads.
And now we hear that Monica Dogra, who was last seen with Rithvik in Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 8, has come on board as the lead actress of the show along with Kubbra Sait. That's right! After giving each other competition in Rohit Shetty's stunt-based reality show, now Rithvik and Monica will romance on-screen.
Monica, who has worked in films like Rock On and Dhobi Ghat will be making her digital debut with the series. She is also a musician by profession and is a part of the judging panel of India's first English music talent show, The Stage.
Cartel is now being directed by Suyash Vadhvankar. The web series which is been solely produced by Ekta, is about gangsters, greed and guns- a saga of love and relationships set in a world of hate and deceit.
Talking about the lead actor of the series, Rithvik Dhanjani was last seen a web show titled XXX by AltBalaji. This will be his second stint in the web space, again with Ekta. He raised a lot of eyebrows for his steamy and intimate scenes in the show. Besides web series, he has also been hosting a couple of reality shows on television.
