“It reveals the secrets in celebrities’ lives”: Karan Johar on ‘The Fame Game’

Netflix recently unveiled the trailer for its upcoming family drama thriller series, The Fame Game, starring Madhuri Dixit Nene. In attendance were Karan Johar, Sri Rao, Bejoy Nambiar, Karishma Kohli, Madhuri Dixit Nene among others.

Speaking on what ‘The Fame Game’ was all about, Karan Johar mentioned that the story not only includes all the grandeur that comes attached to the life of a movie star but also the many secrets that lie beneath, that perhaps no one in the world knows about. He said that this particular fact can be applied to not just the fictional lead, but to any celebrity around the world.

The official Netflix description reads: “Bollywood icon Anamika Anand has it all but is her life perfect or a perfectly crafted facade? In a world of glitz, glamour and fame – the lines of what is real and what is not can often be blurred. ‘The Fame Game’ will take us into the world of superstar Anamika played by Madhuri Dixit Nene”

Speaking on what drew her to this project, Madhuri Dixit Nene stated: “I loved the script, the way it unravels and how full of mystery and intrigue it is made it a fascinating choice for me to say yes to”

Writer and showrunner, Sri Rao had this to say: “I think what makes The Fame Game unique is that despite being a story filled with the glamour and glitz of a Bollywood setting, at the core it is a very relatable story about one family and the various relationships between them.”

Co-director Bejoy Nambiar added: “I had never co-directed a project before and that made me a little anxious but in the end, I had a great time on this project and getting to work with someone like Madhuri ma’am is like a dream come true for me.”

This is Madhuri Dixit Nene’s digital debut with Netflix and the series is set to release on 25 February 2022.
