His debut short film was screened at the 66th Cannes Film Festival and he is now all set to join the ranks of Priyanka Chopra. Actor Hemwant Tiwari, who hails from Daltonganj village in Jharkhand, has recently completed shooting for an international TV series, Medinah.

Medinah is about an accident caused by a failed experiment which prompts teleportation of 12 random people into a different dimension. Tiwary plays a bus driver in the series who is in charge of taking people back to their places.

Directed by Ahmad Bakar, the series was shot in Qatar. Bakar is known for zombie movie Lockdown: Red Moon Escape and The Package Vol. 1. The makers claim it is the first sci-fi Arab series and first 3D movie from the Middle East.

Medinah is a 20-episode series that will be aired across several countries including India.

Hemwant’s Zindagi Bahut Khoobsurat was screened at the Court Metrage, the short film corner of the 66th edition of Cannes Film Festival, in 2013.
