The teaser for Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming drama set against the backdrop of the Mumbai terrorist events of 26/11 has been released.
The upcoming series, titled Mumbai Diaries 26/11, will take us back to the tragic events of that terrible night in November 2008, when terrorists caused destruction across the city. This exciting film, directed by Nikkhil Advani, will portray the great pressure placed within a hospital as a result of the attacks.
This web series, produced by Emmay Entertainment’s Madhu Bhojwani and Monisha Advani, tells the untold lives and experiences of doctors, paramedics, nurses, and hospital workers.
The film stars Konkona SenSharma, Mohit Raina, Satyajeet Dubey, Tina Desai, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Mrunmayee Deshpande, Natasha Bharadwaj, and Prakash Belawadi.
Mohit plays a senior doctor at a government hospital in the series. On the day of the attack, he is assigned a young group of trainees who, on their first day of work, attend to the injured and dying.
During the trailer’s premiere, director Advani stated that this series will present a unique perspective on the tragic night of November 26th that has yet to be portrayed on screen.
“A tribute to frontline workers’ bravery and unsung heroes, the series presents a wonderful blend of emotions and drama through a diverse cast of performers who have poured their hearts and souls into bringing this storey to life. The show will reveal what happened on that fatal night via the eyes of first rescuers, such as doctors, nurses, interns, and ward boys,” he stated.
Advani also believes that by releasing this series, the team will be able to spread the word about this narrative around the world, which is especially important at a time when frontline workers need to be recognised for their efforts.
From September 9th, Mumbai Diaries 26/11 will be available on Amazon Prime Video.
