On Tuesday Netflix released the trailer of its upcoming anthology series, Ray. The anthology is based on one of the stories of the most acclaimed filmmaker-author Satyajit Ray. Actors including Manoj Bajpayee, Ali Fazal, Harshvarrdhan Kapoor, and Kay Kay Menon will shoulder each story based on human emotions like ‘ego, revenge, envy, and betrayal’.
Helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, Srijit Mukherji, and Vasan Bala Ray is set to stream on Netflix from June 25. The trailer looks promising and it holds some of the most acclaimed stories of Ray.
Check out the trailer here.

The anthology also features Gajraj Rao, Ali Fazal, Shweta Basu Prasad, Anindita Bose, Kay Kay Menon, Bidita Bag, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Radhika Madan, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, among others.
Indian Express quoted director Abhishek Chaubey’s statement, “I am drawn to stories that twist with whimsy and humour. Hardly anyone crafts those better than Satyajit Ray, and a chance to tell this story is a great opportunity for me. With Manoj Bajpayee and Gajraj Rao playing off each other on screen, Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, I hope is as much of a joy to watch as it was to make. Super stoked about the show and can’t wait for people to watch it!”
Filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee, added, “Satyajit Ray has been a big inspiration in my life. After faithfully bringing two stories of Ray to life in Feluda Pherot, it is an honour and very fulfilling to reinterpret two more stories of Ray in a decidedly darker space. I also got the opportunity to work with a brilliant cast, including actors like Kay Kay Menon, Ali Fazal and Sweta Basu Prasad across two stories. I’m excited to see how viewers will react to these imperfect and somewhat broken characters.”
