Akshay Oberoi Resumes Shooting Under ‘New Normal’, Finds It Abnormal 12

OTT and film actor Akshay Oberoi seen  in hit digital series  like Selection Day and Magic  has  returned to shooting.

Sharing  the  experience,  Oberoi says,  “It was wonderful to be back on  a set. I’ve been  missing it like crazy.

And it’s been shot by the legendary KU Mohanan.”

   Akshay has  an unusual role in this film. “I play a junkie who ends up discovering his own drug, a sort of mind enhancing one, and starts to sell it. It stars me, Ranvir Shorey and Swetha Basu Prasad. Should be out soon.”
