ALTBalaji dropped the teaser of its action drama Cartel on Friday. The upcoming series has been making buzz for all the right reasons. In a minute-long video, the makers tease the viewers with the world of Angres. This world has power, deceit, manipulation, and a lot of drama. The teaser introduces us to most of the show's primary characters, and there are a lot. Supriya Pathak, Tanuj Virwani, Rithvik Dhanjani, Jitendra Joshi, and several other popular actors appear right off the bat. We are given a glimpse of the Angres, who seem to have a 'kingdom of fear and blood', and Bombay's first family. 

It is quite visible that the show has a stellar star cast. We started counting the number of talented actors who appear just in the teaser, and we lost the count midway. While dropping the teaser, ALTBalaji's caption read, "This is not just some battle, It's a war of power, politics, and revenge!  

The teaser is indeed a well-made one. Especially the banter that appears in the end between Supriya Pathak and Rithvik Dhanjani being the highlight. Makers also revealed that the trailer would be out on August 1. And we can't contain our excitement. 

The show is set to stream from 20th August. As a result, it has been making headlines of late. ALTBalaji dropped the first poster of the series through street art graffiti. A Mumbai-based artist Insane Strokes painted the mural adapted from the poster on the streets of Mumbai. Fans went gaga looking at the poster. The show will release on August 20.
