Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) Actors Gopal Dutt and Mukul Chadda, who feature in the Hindi adaptation of British series “The Office”, say they jumped at a chance to be a part of the project.

OTT platform Hotstar is set to foray into the world of comedy with the launch of “The Office” on June 28. Created for Applause Entertainment by BBC Studios India, the show has been directed by Rohan Sippy and Debbie Rao.

It is a 13-episode mockumentary where typical office characters find themselves in atypical situations.

Mukul said: “This show has been adapted in eight to nine countries. So when I got this offer and the scripting of the show was fantastic, there was no question or hesitation. I agreed to do the show immediately.

“My character Jagdeep Chadha is so fantastic to portray. So I was happy to get the show.”

Noted for his roles in films such as “Tere Naam”, “Filmistaan” and “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan”, Gopal said: “It is an official adaptation, so the main themes remain the same. We have only Indianised it. The characters are Indians. I have seen ‘The office’, I have heard about it, so when I got the offer, I jumped at it.”

Set in Faridabad, the show chronicles the 9-to-5 lives of the employees at Wilkins Chawla as they navigate through their mundane routine that invariably gives rise to comical situations.

The ensemble cast includes Gauahar Khan, Ranvir Shorey, Sayandeep Sengupta, Samridhi Dewan, Priyanka Setia, Abhinav Sharma, Gavin Methalaka, Preeti Kochar, Sunil Jetly, Chien Ho Liao, Nehpal Gautam and Mayur Bansiwal amongst others.
