Hansal Mehta’s first webseries promises to be a game-changer. Scam, produced by the quality-conscious Applause Entertainment, recreates that whole hysteria surrounding Harshad Mehta’s rise as the king of Dalal Street, and then his thundering downfall.
The tantatalizing teaser that’s just out shows the talented Sharib Hashmi as the man determined to expose Harshad Mehta’s multi-million stock brokerage scam. Hashmi is seen huffing and panting to Shreya Dhanwanthry(she was in another film about another scam Why Cheat India) about how deep Dalal scam runs.
Prudently Hansal Mehta(no relation to Harshad) with-holds any visual image in the first of the on-screen Harshad Mehta played by the phenomenal Gujarati actor Pratik Gandhi.
Why expose everything in the first go? Why not make the expose a slowly unraveling striptease of fiscal intrigue and corporate greed? I can’t wait to see what Hansal , the Mehta has done to Harshad the Mehta in the soon-to-be-streamed series Scam.
