After the success of Scam 1992 depicting the security scams by Indian stockbroker Harshad Mehta, the story of the founder of the Nirav Modi chain of diamond jewellery stores, a fugitive business is set to get a screen adaptation.
Based on journalist Pavan C. Lall’s book ‘Flawed: The Rise and Fall of India’s Diamond Mogul Nirav Modi’, Abundantia Entertainment will be producing the adaptation. It is known for films such as Shakuntala Devi, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, and Airlift.
The seasons will be released for the web series. The project’s scripting and casting are now in progress.
The book tells the story of Modi’s rise to power and eventual collapse. It is based on personal interactions, insightful interviews, and rigorous research conducted by the author, who will also serve as a consultant writer for the untitled series.
Speaking about the new venture, Pavan C. Lall said:
“Capturing the sensibility of a book in a cinematic way is not a simple task but I have full faith in Abundantia Entertainment and believe that they will do complete justice to this endeavour and give Flawed the appropriate visual mounting.”
“Flawed: The Rise… is my effort to bring to the audience the tale of a larger-than-life entrepreneur – his spectacular rise and equally dramatic fall which brought an entire industry to its knees.”
