Last seen together in celebrated filmmaker Aparna Sen’s National Award-winning film 15 Park Avenue (2005), immensely talented actress Shabana Azmi and Shefali Shah have joined hands for an upcoming medical-thriller series. Inspired from some real-life occurrences in hospitals, the series is being bankrolled by well-known filmmaker Vipul Shah.

Initially, Vipul Shah was keen to make a feature film on the same subject, but then he decided to bring it as a series as summing it up in two and a half hour was not possible. “Vipul Shah felt that the content was so relevant and interesting that it would not fit well in a two and a half hour film. Then he decided to create a show that could go either on the TV or on the OTT platform which would do justice to the subject,” a source close to the development reveals.

Shedding some more light on the characters that Shabana and Shefali play in the series, producer Vipul Shah said, “Shefali is playing a doctor while Shabana will be essaying the role of her boss and owner of the hospital where she works. The show will revolve around their characters and the unique, conflicted relationship they share.”

The producer also revealed that he has been working on the series for quite some time now. “I had started developing it as a film but eventually realised that the subject I want to incorporate would not fit in such a short time-frame,” he added.

Vipul Shah informs that the project is still in the development stage and will be shot in cities like Bhopal and Indore. “It will go on the floors shortly and will be set in cities like Bhopal and Indore,” he concluded.
