If sources are to be believed, the actor will begin shooting for it in Northern Ireland and London by May 8.

Says Anupam, “Mrs Wilson is set in a very interesting background and follows a gripping storyline which had me hooked as I read it. Not to mention, it is great to be a part of such a talented star cast ensemble. I look forward to shooting in the next month.”

The actor has previously worked in popular shows like Sense8 and The Indian Detective.
