Speaking about the series, Shaad Ali said “This project has been close to my heart since the beginning. It was a huge responsibility to be mindful of the original screenplay, which has been such a success, and yet leave my own stamp on the adaptation.”
He added: “Each component of the show, from the casting to the cameos, has been planned with great care. All of us who are a part of the show have poured our heart and soul into it. I just can’t wait to introduce the audiences to the world of showbiz through my lens.”
