ALTBalaji: the OTT platform from the stables of Balaji Telefilms, ably helmed by Ekta Kapoor, will soon stream a hard-hitting, engaging courtroom drama which is tentatively based on the K. M. Nanavati v. State of Maharashtra case. Audience has already seen its adaptation on the big screen in the Akshay Kumar starrer movie Rustom.
Now, IWMBuzz team has learnt that the above project, titled The Verdict-State vs Nanavati, is being spearheaded by Subhash Kapoor (Jolly LLB) and Samar Khan.
To do justice to the plot, talented performers Manav Kaul (Tumhari Sullu) and Jim Sarbh (recently seen in Sanju) have been brought on board.
A source adds: “Manav Kaul will play role of Kawas Nanavati. Jim Sarbh will play the lawyer of Nanavati. It’s going to be a gripping narrative.”
We bet, it will be.
IWMBuzz.com texted Ekta Kapoor from ALTBalaji to seek a comment but did not revert till the time of filing the article.
We will soon come up with more updates.
