Published: 29th June 2022

After Aranyak on Netflix and Rocket Boys on Sony LIV, Roy Kapur Films (RKF) has announced a new slate of series in development and production for 2022-23. 

Vishnuvardhan, director of Shershaah (2021), is set to make his series directorial debut with a sweeping epic action drama across multiple seasons, which will tell the fascinating story of an integral part of India’s 20th century military history.

Mahesh Narayanan, behind the Malayalam films C U Soon (2020) and Malik (2021), will helm an edge-of-the-seat multi-season spy thriller set across the Middle East and South Asia.

Hardik Mehta, National Award-winning director of Kaamyaab (2018), will headline a thrilling family drama series set across Europe, Africa and India in the rarefied and exclusive world of warring business families. 

Abbas Tyrewala, writer of Maqbool (2003) and Main Hoon Na (2004), whose directorial debut Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) is a cult youth classic, will write and showrun a suave and stylish spy action drama series, set in the cloak and dagger world of South Asian counter-intelligence.

Matka King, which was announced last year, will be created by Nagraj Manjule, and is based on the fascinating world of the gambling game “matka” and the dangerous and brilliant men who ran it.

Arati Kadav, one of the winners of the BAFTA Breakthrough Awards 2022 whose debut feature film Cargo has a cult following in the Indian “lo-fi” sci-fi space, is creating a series which will be a fresh and quirky take on romance in the sci-if genre. 

Bhavesh Kapadia, popular ad filmmaker and the brain behind some of India's most famous ads for Nerolac and Crompton, will make his directorial debut with a wild and entertaining female-led comic thriller series. 

Anubhav Chopra, having earned rave reviews for his Netflix documentary House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths (2021), will write and direct a young adult drama series, set in the pressure cooker environment of a modern day high-school.

Jinesh Shah, Head, Originals RKF, said, “With these eight phenomenal series, we are prepared to bring audiences a smorgasbord of riveting stories. We're looking forward to training our lenses on different worlds with these talented filmmakers, and delving into the psyches of intriguing, layered and compelling characters.”

Later this year, Roy Kapur Films will release the feature films Pippa, Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? and Bas Karo Aunty!, as well as the Season 2 of Rocket Boys.
