“I share a great relationship with Raj Kundra and his family. My first song Tu Hi Hai Aashiqui was produced by him when I was 18-years-old, now I my first web-series is being released on his new OTT platform,” says Muchhal.
The story of Rickshaw is based around daily life in Mumbai. The tale is narrated through a rickshaw driver (Brijendra Kala).
“The process of making the series inside a rickshaw, using only four cameras, capturing every detail was an incredible experience. It was also satisfying to compose songs for the series,” he says.
"Some stories don't just need to be told but felt. A sensitive, touching story shown in an unique yet extraordinary way by Palash,” commented actor and producer Arbaaz Khan after watching the series.
