Shiksha Mandal series trailer: This tale of education system corruption has shades of Vyapam scam

The show stars Gulshan Devaiah, Gauhar Khan and Pavan Raj Malhotra

Published: 29th August 2022

The trailer of the upcoming series Shiksha Mandal was released by the makers on Monday. The series is set to premiere on MX Player on September 15.

The trailer offers glimpses of the series and focuses on how a section of students has been forced to be part of a corrupted education system and no way to stand up to the authorities.

The series is inspired by the Vyapam Scam that shook Madhya Pradesh, and gives a peak into what's touted as India's biggest education scam. The premise also shows how exam scams fuelled by politicians in collaboration with educational institutions and how this further leads to mysterious disappearances and student deaths.

Actor Gulshan Devaiah said in a statement: "Any scam related to education lands a heavy blow on aspiring candidates struggling hard to clear exams and is enough to break their morale.”

“Education is an important sector that is instrumental in empowering our today and shaping our tomorrow; thus, having been a teacher myself, being a part of this story and playing the part of a teacher made perfect sense to me,” he added.

The series, directed by Syed Ahmad Afzal,  is inspired by true events and reveals corruption, fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy that affect the students. It stars Gauahar Khan, Gulshan Devaiah, Pavan Raj Malhotra, Rajendra Sethi and Iram Badar Khan in pivotal roles.

 Afzal said: "While Shiksha Mandal is a story inspired by true events, we've tried to ensure that the narrative is as gripping as it is realistic.

"It has an added advantage for us that we have talented actors like Gauahar, Gulshan, and Pavan sir, who have shown faith in the script and me. Our association with MX Player is strengthened with this show.”

Pavan Raj Malhotra said: "I like to take up roles that make an impact on the audience, be it with laughter or a stirring thought.”

"With Shiksha Mandal, we are deconstructing what goes in the corrupted educational circuit and the impact on the common people involved. And that is the kind of story I would like to be a part of,” he added.
