Mumbai, Apr 8 (PTI) Actor Mrinal Dutt is set to play a gay character in the upcoming series 'His Storyy'.

Described as an urban relationship drama, the show is scheduled to start streaming on ALTBalaji and ZEE5 Premium from April 25. The series, backed by Ding Entertainment, also stars Satyadeep Mishra and Priyamani Raj, who will be seen in the role of Kunal and Sakshi, a married couple. Dutt, who was recently seen in director Arati Kadav's short film '55km/sec' co-starring Richa Chadha, is playing the character of Preet, a food critic and a traveller.

'Their lives will intertwine when Sakshi calls Preet for her restaurant opening, not knowing that her perfect family is about to go for a toss with unexpected turn of events,' the synopsis read. Dutt said 'His Storyy' is a show that puts spotlight on issues which are perhaps ignored by the mainstream. 'Thanks to shows like these, we have an opportunity to raise our voice or raise questions at least. With such stories taking a centre stage, there is a lot to say. I am equally excited and intrigued to see how the show will be received,' the actor said in a statement. Producer Ekta Kapoor also took to Instagram and shared the show's first teaser. 'After living a 'happily married life' for over 20 years, Sakshi and Kunal's marriage comes crumbling down after a hidden truth changes everything.

'Show streaming 25th April on @altbalaji and @Zee5premium,' Kapoor wrote. PTI JUR RB BK BK
