Endemol Shine India Teams with Gulbadan Talkies for Two Series


Endemol Shine India will be creating two new series in collaboration with the Mumbai-based Gulbadan Talkies, including its first Marathi drama.

ThorleVishwasraoDhakle (TVD) is an 8×45-minute Marathi series set in Maharashtra. The drama focuses on the relationship of a grandfather who is a retired private detective and his grandson, an angsty youth computer hacker, as they work together to solve a murder that happens in front of their very eyes. However, the solution is not as clear as they thought, and they find themselves wading into a dark world of conspiracy.

Also 8×45 minutes, Radical is a multi-lingual comedy series (primarily Hindi). Abandoned in the middle of Mumbai, Ahsaan, Samar and Wajid build a life from scratch over the ten years that follow. Their unplanned immigration to Mumbai soon becomes a refuge from their past, a past that has been rightfully demonized. Mumbai’s fate is left to the Mumbaikar himself, be it the aspiring Ahsaan, the family man Samar, or the swindling conman Wajid. Through their actions, they unknowingly repay the debt they owe Mumbai for offering them a chance to carve out their own existence.

Both series will showcase actors from BhaDiPa(Bhartiya Digital party), a subset of Gulbadan Talkies.

Abhishek Rege, CEO of Endemol Shine India, said, “We are pleased to collaborate with a creative powerhouse brand like BhaDiPa and Gulbadan Talkies for these two shows. At Endemol Shine India, we are always looking at creating content that is exciting and entertaining for our viewers and tying up with fresh talented artists and directors who are eager to showcase their ideas and enhance the creative space.”
