A new teaser for the upcoming web series titled ‘Scam 1992’ was just released. It has been helmed by renowned director Hansal Mehta and focuses on the biggest stock market scam committed by Harshad Mehta.
The upcoming show is an adaptation of the book ‘The Scam’ written by Debasish Basu and Sucheta Dala. The teaser focuses on a reluctant man telling a leading journalist (probably essaying the role of Sucheta Dalal) about a fraud that has been committed worth 500 crore rupees. The rest of the teaser features quick sequences of the city of Bombay in the year 1980-1990 with a peppy track playing in the background.
Hansal Mehta shared the teaser on his Twitter account.
here is the first teaser of #Scam1992. A mammoth but supremely satisfying experience. Made easy because @JaiHMehta was there as co-director and my entire team collaborated to make this series come alive. Cant wait to show the entire first season to the world. Streaming soon! https://t.co/yNjUdLb39K
