Disney+ Hotstar made some big announcements at Disney’s D23 in Anaheim. One of their upcoming fiction series is Showtime, produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Somen Mishra (A Dharmatic Entertainment Production).
Producer, director, and host Karan Johar said, “I am excited to associate with Disney+ Hotstar for our new collaboration, announced at the prestigious D23 Expo. I am happy to announce an all-new Dharma Production series, Showtime, which will lift the curtain on India’s entertainment industry’s biggest trade secrets.”
Gaurav Banerjee, Head of Content, Disney+ Hotstar told Bollywood Hungama, “We are doing a show with Karan Johar called Showtime, the one who has taken so much heat on the topic of nepotism is coming around and is going to tell the story of how all this fits in Bollywood. It’s a story about a studio and which direction it will take. Will it go in favour of bloodline or will it go with merit!”
Synopsis of Showtime: Bollywood is the land of dreams – dreams that are dreamt with eyes wide open. Showtime, a drama series, brings forward all the off-screen fights for the power that runs the show. A deep, raw, unconcealed & uninhibited look into the battle lines that are drawn and crossed to keep the camera rolling and the audience clapping. There is only one emperor that sits on the chair – but what’s a throne without a fight to get there? So, lights…camera…and action! Emraan Hashmi will play the lead in Show Time.
Disney’s D23 is the world’s biggest fan fest that’s taking place in Anaheim, the first one since post-covid.
