Call My Agent: Bollywood is about a Bollywood talent management company which is on the verge of collapse after the death of its founder. Stars leave the company because of its dwindling reputation. But four street-smart agents, like good Samaritans, stand in good stead of their organisation. Ironically, their efforts to rescue the sinking ship plunges it further into deeper problems.

Ahana Kumra and Ayush Mehra will feature as young employees whereas screen veterans Soni Razdan and Rajat Kapoor will play senior officials of the company. Ali Fazal, Jackie Shroff, Lara Dutta, Farah Khan, Dia Mirza and Richa Chadha will make cameo appearances as reel actors and actresses.
