Premiering Sept. 14 on the streamer, the 10-episode series was created by Rensil D’Silva (“Dial 100”) and Shujaat Saudagar (“The Underbug”), based on a story by longtime crime journalist S. Hussain Zaidi. At the show’s global premiere in London on Tuesday night, the cast and crew — including D’Silva and Saudagar; Excel Media and Entertainment producers Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Kassim Jagmagia; stars Kritika Kamra and Avinash Tiwary; and Prime Video execs James Farrell and Aparna Purohit — spoke with Variety‘s Naman Ramachandran about bringing “Bambai Meri Jaan” to life.“This family unit … really, really engages you beyond the bad guys vs. the good guys,” Akhtar said. “It really stays with you.
“This project is really a labor of love,” Purohit, head of India Originals at Prime Video, added. “It’s just incredible passion that everyone brought to the table. Lockdowns were understandable, the whole world was battling it. But when the cyclone hit our sets and it was destroyed, it really shook all of us … I think it’s this resilience, this passion, this sense of ownership, this belief is what kept us going through it. We truly believe in this show.”Tiwary found that there was also a special camaraderie within the cast. “It was one of those rare projects where you felt like all the actors wanted to come together, do readings on their own and share their own research about what they were finding,” he said. “This is one experience that I think I will take to my grave, because this kind of integrity and intensity from everyone involved is really, really rare.”
