Award-winning filmmaker Hansal Mehta has embarked on a new cinematic journey with his upcoming web series titled ‘Gandhi,’ based on the insightful books by historian Ramachandra Guha.

Gandhi marks the third collaboration between Hansal Mehta and actor Paritosh Gandhi, who essays the role of Mahatma Gandhi, after the critically acclaimed successes of 'Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story' and 'Baai.' Joining the ensemble cast alongside Pratik Gandhi is acclaimed actor Addinath Kothare, who plays a pivotal character in the series.
