Misra also unveiled the ensemble cast, which includes Jimmy Sheirgill, Aashim Gulati, Vikram Kochhar, Namit Das, Monika Panwar, Gyanendra Tripathi, Chandan Roy, Atul Srivastava and Niharika Lyra Dutt.
Talking about the show, the director said, "What comes to your mind when you hear the word 'Choona? For me, it is the quintessentially Indian flavour of ''choona lagaana'' (deceive someone)."
"The excitement of discovering who deceived whom and how they did it is incomparable, especially when it's the weak pitted against the powerful. There's no synonym that can do justice to this feeling. Since we are all about the drama and rooting for the underdogs," he added.
Misra said the show presents the perfect blend of the heist genre with the "lightness of a comedy".
"Put this together with amazingly talented actors in a long-form series format, and you get Choona," he added.
