The 1992 securities scam had rocked the financial markets of India. It was, what everyone calls, a once in a Blue Moon event. That particular event had led to monstrous changes in the financial markets. It was a fascinating event and one, which left everyone intrigued, with the way it transpired.
The man behind the now-infamous scam, Harshad Mehta, got wide publicity because of it. How he did such a scam? Well, most of the people know this, but soon, it’ll be retold in Hansal Mehta’s web series, Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story.
It is a series, the director had been making, with all his heart, and he has now revealed its release date. October 9, is when the series will come out and will premiere on SonyLIV.
Mehta announced the news on Twitter, tweeting :
It is based on The Scam, a book that Debashish Basu and Sucheta Dalal wrote. The series premise reads:
“It follows the life of Harshad Mehta, a stockbroker who single-handedly took the stock market to dizzying heights & his catastrophic downfall.”
In March this year, the crew had completed the series shoot, with Hansal at that time, tweeting :
“We wrapped a mammoth 85 days shoot spanning 6 months, 550 pages, 170+ characters, and 200+ locations. It was tough but eventually satisfying. A great team saw this (and is still seeing it) through all the limitations and adversities. #Scam1992 is THEIR show. Thank you, team!”
The cast of the show includes actors such as Pratik Gandhi, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Satish Kaushik, Nikhil Dwivedi, Ananth Mahadevan, Rajat Kapoor, Lalit Parimoo, KK Raina, and Sharib Hashmi among others.
While the show has only a few days left, before it premieres, we can’t wait to see, what Hansal delivers this time.
