Director Ritesh Batra of The Lunchbox and Photograph fame will be directing the series. 

Though an official announcement is yet to be made, Vidya, who has acquired the adaptation rights for the book, had previously confirmed during an interview that she will be making her web series debut. She also stated that the content of the series, that will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala, is massive and it would require a lot of work.
