EXCLUSIVE: Showtime director Mihir Desai says “Truth is stranger than fiction” in Bollywood

Talking about the same, director Mihir Desai said, “While Bollywood shimmers with all the glitz and glam, beneath the surface lies several stories more incredible than any script. Here, amidst the larger-than-life personas and the relentless pursuit of fame, you’ll find hidden struggles and the grit of everyday people pushing the boundaries of filmmaking. In Bollywood, truth is stranger than fiction – some of the stories I’ve witnessed, personally experienced even, are so outlandish they had to make their way into this crazy world of Showtime.”

He further added, “Yes, egos clash, lines blur, and the pressure mounts, but through it all, there’s an undeniable madness in storytellers, producers and every single crew member that makes Bollywood one family. In Showtime we take this madness further and make it about the experiences of insiders and outsiders. What I found fascinating in the script was that being an outsider you often see the industry through rose-tinted glasses. But once you’re in, reality sets in. We tried to best portray this shift in perspective through our protagonists in Showtime. Through the making, we’ve peppered the show with relevant topics like nepotism, regional cinema comparisons, and actor stereotyping.”

Created by Sumit Roy, Showrunner and directed by Mihir Desai and Directed by Archit Kumar, the screenplay is by Sumit Roy, Mithun Gangopadhyay and Lara Chandni while the dialogues are written by Jehan Handa and Karan Shrikant Sharma Hotstar. Showtime is helmed by Emraan Hashmi, Mahima Makwana with Mouni Roy, Rajeev Khandelwal, Shriya Saran, Vishal Vashishtha, Neeraj Madhav, Vijay Raaz and Naseeruddin Shah in pivotal roles.
