ALTBalaji is getting fast becoming a platform that is getting the big names from Bollywood to web series. After Habib Faisal, the streaming platform has signed up Subhash Kapoor to hold the reigns for a web series.

Subhash Kapoor seems like a good fit for this, after all, he has made some quirky films like Phas Gaye Re Obama and Guddu Rangeela. The director is one of the few who have made successful courtroom dramas – the Jolly LLB franchise.

That web series will be based on the infamous Nanavati case of 1959. The Nanavati case of 1959 was incredibly controversial, because it was one of the first cases to involve a Navy Officer and have an infidelity background.  The case has inspired Bollywood and at least two films were based – Achanak in 1973 and Rustom in 2016.

It will be interesting to see a web series bring this story to the streaming platform. With web series getting the benefit of a longer screen time, it’s simpler for them to portray the characters in a better manner and endeavor to tell a more complete story than a film.
