Abundantia Entertainment is teaming up with Scam 1992 co-director Jai Mehta for a new crime film. Set in the backdrop of central India, the film re-tells of the story of 'one of the most challenging crimes ever dealt with by the Indian investigative agencies.'

Jai has shouldered creative roles in films like Omerta, Aligarh, Gangs of Wasseypur 1 & 2, Citylights and Simran. He is currently gearing up for the release of his original series Lootere on Disney+ Hotstar.

Talking about their association with Jai Mehta and the presently untitled, in-development film, Founder & CEO of Abundantia Entertainment, Vikram Malhotra, says, “Empowering and enabling unique storytelling voices, especially young and disruptive ones, is a core focus at Abundantia Entertainment. I have been a big admirer of Jai’s work and am super excited that he joins the Abundantia family to bring to screen this unique and thrilling tale. We’ve always been keen to explore the True Crime genre with an Indian sensibility and I am delighted that this is taking shape with Jai’s film."

Jai Mehta says, “As a storyteller, I’ve always been fascinated by the depths of the human mind and the extent of its deviousness. Also being an avid consumer of content in the True Crime genre, I’m drawn to this blend of thrill and emotional impact. This film is not just based on a true story but also has a set of riveting characters and twists and turns that are set to keep the audience on the edges of their seats all through."

Abundantia Entertainment has produced films like Jalsa, Sherni, Shakuntala Devi, Chhorii, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and more.
