Hansal Mehta is coming back with another thrilling story after Scam 1992. Netflix recently revealed that filmmaker Hansal Mehta has contributed to the upcoming character drama series Scoop. Mehta and Mrunmayee Lagoo Waikul, famed for co-writing Thappad, were inspired to write Scoop by Jigna Vora’s autobiographical book ‘Behind the Bars in Byculla: My Days in Prison’. Mehta, who is well-known for directing successful films like Scam 1992, Shahid, and Aligarh, remarked that after reading Vora’s book, he felt “compelled” to adapt the tale for the big screen. When they initially read the book, Sanjay Routray, producer at Matchbox Shots, said they realised the “inspirational story of grit and courage” deserved to be shared on a bigger medium. And now, they are ready with the show to be premiered.
