Director Hansal Mehta known for his unique hard-hitting and out of the box movies is coming with a web series next. It is based on the real and shocking scam that rocked the nation in the ’90s.
The title of the series should be a giveaway, which is Scam 1992. Yes, it is based on the life of Harshad Mehta, the stockbroker who gobbled up the stock market. The actual show though borrows its content from the book, The Scam written by journalist Sucheta Dalal.
Karthik Krishnan, an actor with great critical acclaim and who has been part of movies like Bombay Talkies and Dheepan, has been roped in to play a crucial role. Previously, Pratik Gandhi and Shweta Dhanwanthary were roped in to play the lead roles in the series.
Other details about this exciting project are yet to be known. But, what is also intriguing here is a film too is being made about the same person. It has the scam in its backdrop. We have to see who arrives first. Given the pace at which the web series is made, we could see Scam 1992 early, mostly.
