Post the critically acclaimed series on the infamous Harshad Mehta story, Scam 1992 from Hansal Mehta for Sony Liv last year, this year on April 9 the film adaptation of the same story will release on Disney+Hotstar.
The series made Pratik Gandhi and Shreya Dhanwantary overnight stars who received rave reviews all across. So much so that the sequel to the series Scam 2002 was recently announced. Now Abhishek Bachchan who is kind of in his second innings is going to portray the pivotal role of Harshad Mehta and Illeana D’cruz plays the journalist Sucheta Dalaal, however the names are changed in the film.
Abhishek does look like the part and with an able supporting cast that includes Ram Kapoor, Saurabh Shukla and Soham Shah the film definitely looks intriguing but the streaming audience who has already consumed the 10 part series on the same topic, will they be equally delighted?
There will definitely be comparisons and I am not sure if it will be a good thing for the film.
