 Vish Dhamija's Rita Ferreira series to be made into a web show 

The crime-fighting adventures of fictional heroine DCP Rita Ferreira will be adapted into a digital series by Abundantia Entertainment 

Published: 03rd June 2019

Abundantia Entertainment has acquired the rights to make a digital series on author Vish Dhamija’s Rita Ferreira series. The deal comprises 3 books – Bhendi Bazaar, Doosra and Lipstick. Set in Mumbai, the multi-series thriller will follow DCP Rita Ferreira and her unconventional approach to crime-fighting. 

“The tough-as-nails, sharp-as-a-tack, Jim Beam drinking, female cop is not your conventional investigator,” says Vish, whose books have dominated best-sellers lists in India. 

“For the Rita Ferreira books to be chosen over so many others in the genre by Abundantia and Vikram is simply an indescribable feeling for me – for once I am an author at a loss of words,” the writer adds. 

Abundantia Entertainment has produced films like Airlift, Baby, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and the Amazon original series Breathe. Speaking about their new digital venture, founder Vikram Malhotra says, “From the first time that we read Vish’s books, we knew that we had to bring Rita Ferreira to life. A top-notch writers room is being put in place for this show as we aim to recreate and enhance the world of Rita Ferreira for her fans.”

Abundantia Entertainment is also producing the upcoming Shakuntala Devi biopic starring Vidya Balan and the military drama Rifleman featuring Sushant Singh Rajput.
