ALTBalaji’s much awaited web series Medically Yourrs is out now. The series showcases the struggles of medical students, the challenges, the pressures of not just performance but simply surviving and what it really takes to be a doctor.
After the first look of the show was revealed last week, it became the talk of the town. Audiences have been eager to watch new content.
After TVF’s Kota Factory that highlights the life and daily struggles of IIT aspirants, streaming platforms are experimenting with realistic content. Amazon Prime too launched a show on the malpractices of selling medicines/drugs illegally recently.
Medically Yourrs will reveal the real picture behind the haloed lives of MBBS students.
The 10 episode mini-series is a medical college drama that revolves around Abir Basu, played by Shantanu Maheshwari. Born in a family of doctors, he lives under the immense pressure of proving himself worthy in their eyes.
Nityaami Shirke plays the role of Nibedita, a total geek who is complete contrast to the character she had played in ALTBalaji’s PM Selfiewallie.
Other characters are Vishesh, who aims to be a doctor anyhow, Lolly, who is the narrator of the show, and Pallav, a state topper but has put tremendous pressure on himself. All are together fighting the battle of trying to sail through the final year of MBBS.
On playing protagonist Abir, Shantanu, who began his career as a child artist, shared, “This is a very different character that I am playing. Abir has actually given me a glimpse into the real life of medical students, something I have never even imagined. I’m very excited about the web-series as I am taking up an acting project after long, something I was actually missing. I had a great time working with the entire cast and crew. The entire unit has been very hard working and the off-screen chemistry between the entire cast will definitely reflect on screen.”
The show aims to present a world that actually exists behind the towering walls of medical colleges.
The show also features actors Bijay Anand, Shubhaavi Choksey, Ivan Rodrigues in pivotal roles.
