The show is co-written by Jai along with Suparn Varma, Vishal Kapoor, and Vaibhav Vishal. The release date of the show is yet to be announced. Reports suggest that the show revolves around the lives of The Jadhavs, who migrated from Bihar to Molo in Kenya but were caught due to fierce ethnicity conflicts.
Apart from this, Hansal Mehta also has Faraaz, the SonyLIV series based on RK Yadav’s book Mission R&AW and Scam: 2003 in the pipeline. As for the cast, Kapoor has Sony LIV’s new show Tanaav, an adaptation of Israeli show Fauda in his kitty. Khan will be seen in Amitabh Bachchan’s Goodbye next.
