Ashim Ahluwalia serves as both the director and the showrunner for the series.
He said about the show: “As a filmmaker and storyteller, Class is a universe I always envisioned designing for India. Each character’s journey is unpredictable and fascinating. Young people can be highly emotional and impulsive, which makes for great dramatic conflict.
“Nobody remains unchanged and these layers in the narrative make it a wild, addictive watch. The entire team of Class – especially the young cast – has been great to work with and we are excited for the audience to get a glimpse of this unique world with this teaser!”
Netflix India Series Head Tanya Bami added: “With Class, we are delighted to bring to life the Indian adaptation of the globally loved Spanish series Elite. We have grown our young adult series slate with much loved series such as Kota Factory and Mismatched, and Class will further strengthen this line-up.
“Headlined by a talented ensemble cast of fresh talent, Class traverses two worlds within the same city, giving a deeper insight into the youths at the heart of the story, their conflicts, challenges, and affinities. Class is an unmissable viewing experience for audiences across all age groups.”
