Actor Amol Parashar is set for his first stint on television in and as "Gabru". He will be seen playing a Punjabi hip-hop king -- Gaurav Singh aka MC Money -- as part of the series which charts the journey of Indian hip-hop over the past six-seven years.
The 40-episode show is for Discovery Jeet.
It follows the trials and tribulations of the protagonist, who at the peak of his career faces a threat from a rival rapper Sarfaraz aka Surf, and his ex-flame Bani aka Queen B.
Amol said in a statement: "It's an amazingly complex character and I was instantly drawn to it. Since the story revolves around music and musicians, there are quite a few songs in different styles and they are all being originally composed. I heard some of the music before signing the project, and can safely say that was one the major reasons I decided to come aboard."
The show is being produced by Anand Tiwari and AmritPal Singh Bindra under their banner Still and Still Media Collective, that has been popular for their content across web, films and advertising. The music is being produced by Earl Edgar.
