The first trailer for upcoming Bollywood thriller Switchh, which was entirely shot in the UAE, has been released.

Starring actor Vikrant Massey and featuring the big screen debut of Dubai resident Naren Kumar, the film will premiere on streaming service Eros Now on March 21.

Switchh tells the story of a millionaire, played by Kumar, whose passion for the high-stakes world of illegal street racing gets him entangled in an elaborate crime plotted by Massey's character, who plays a racer.

Production wrapped up right before stay-at-home orders last year, with streaming company Eros Now eventually securing the rights.

"Switchh is an intriguing story that will leave viewers at the edge of their seats. The story, screenplay and performances are perfectly woven together to offer audiences a thrilling experience," Ridhima Lulla, the chief content officer for Eros Group told the Indian Express.

Kumar, who grew up in Dubai and then worked in his family's real estate business, previously starred in Pakistani TV series Kabhi Aaye Na Judai. This will be his first Bollywood role.

“I consider myself blessed and fortunate where actors struggle for years and years to get a Bollywood break or where their families are in the Bollywood industry with a backing, I am today honoured to be the lead in such a big banner film,” he said.

Directed by Mustufa Raj, Switchh also features actor and former Dubai resident Nitinn R Miranni, as well as actress Tanvi Vyas in supporting roles.
