Rannvijay Singha, who recently appeared in ZEE5 anthology Forbidden Love, is back on the digital cart with Mismatched. In the upcoming Netflix series, which also features internet sensation Prajakta Koli and Rohit Saraf, Singha plays a hot new professor that students are in love with.
The actor was director Akarsh Khurana’s first choice for the role of Sid. “My character is cool and snarling on the outside, but softie on the inside. Professor Sid believes in tough love when it comes to his students. He wants to push them out of their comfort zone so they can reach their highest potential,” said Singha, who is synonymous with the TV show Roadies.
Writer Gazal Dhaliwal has etched his character as an unorthodox teacher who encourages his teenage students to think out of the box and help them develop a new app. The actor believes that viewers will find shades of their favorite professor in his character. ‘We’ve all had at least one teacher like this in our lives. So Sid is inspired by several of my teachers. He may seem indifferent, rash and sarcastic, but his intentions are noble. ”
The coming-of-age series, co-directed by Nipun Dharmadhikari and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, centers around two teenagers who build an app as they navigate strange friends, annoying bullies and each other.
