Indian Sopranos (The Sopariwalas maybe?)
March 12, 2014 § Leave a comment
I stumbled into this news from June 2013 that Amitabh Bachchan was planned to star in a fictional TV series, conceptualised/directed by Anurag Kashyap. While there are no details on the progress made on the venture since then, there is at least one report which suggests that the series is based on “The Sopranos“, with Bachchan playing a role similar to the one played by James Gandolfini.
I wonder how the plans were affected by the less than optimistic viewer response to the Indian version of “24“, which was in post-production in June 2013, and was attracting lot of hype. Although 24 has been renewed for a second season, indicating perhaps that the Indian broadcasters are willing to take non-popular risks with content.
