Mooroo has a web series in the offing

Taimoor Salahuddin, more commonly known as Mooroo, is one of the most imaginative and consistent artists operating in our pop culture environment.

Having released several gripping singles and following it up with a mellifluous solo album called Pehli just last year, Mooroo is more than a singer. Apart from writing provoking and beautiful songs, he is also a filmmaker and known on the interwebs for making comedic sketches and a number of off-beat music videos.

Given just how tech-savvy Mooroo is, it isn’t surprising for us to learn that he has a web series in the pipeline. However, it is different than its predecessors since it doesn’t have a comic angle and is closer to the grim realities of our internal and external worlds.

Expanding on the nature of the show, Mooroo told Something Haute recently: “It’s a three part; 15 minutes each web series, interconnected stories, three different characters, and repeated timelines. It’s about alcoholism, it’s about transformation, and it’s about dealing with your past and your inner demons.”

The production, according to Mooroo, has a working title of Sayay (Shadows) while a release date has not been announced just yet.

Using Internet as a tool to tell stories that depict real life struggles that maybe considered taboo for television, Mooroo noted that the good thing about the Internet is that there is no need to compromise. “Of course, there is no compromise required on the Internet,” he concurred. “And plus, there are no TV channel heads who go like ‘yea only this stuff works so we will only play this.’ You can upload anything on the internet. If it works, it works, if it doesn’t then it doesn’t. Your failure is your own failure. Your success is also yours. Nobody can own that success. I like that responsibility and the way it affects me is that I like do better things then.”
