When the need to stay alive is strong, emotions are high, and logic is gone, even the smallest thing could cause bad decisions or even crime. Three scholarship students from the other side of the tracks with nothing to lose are joining the elite academy of pupils who hold the entire world in the palm of their hands. What transpires when these two bleak worlds meet? Everyone is a suspect as conflicts erupt in the school and secrets become more buried. It's time to start taking notes this month of February because classes are officially back in session!

The trailer for the young adult series does a great job of showing how crazy things will get at Hampton International when everyone is living together, ideas clash, and feelings are running high. Chaos is just around the corner, like any emotional upheaval. However, when murder is involved, betrayals are common, and nobody is who they seem to be. After all, secret romances often lead to secret betrayals. The Netflix show Class is based on the hugely popular Spanish show Elite, and it has all the makings of a gripping, gritty coming-of-age story and a whodunit like no other.

Gurfateh Pirzada, Anjali Sivaraman, Ayesha Kanga, Chayan Chopra, Chintan Rachchh, Cwaayal Singh, Madhyama Segal, Moses Koul, Naina Bhan, Piyush Khati, and Zeyn Shaw are just some of the young actors in Class.


Tanya Bami, Head of Series for Netflix India, described the company's goal in delivering "Class" to Indian viewers. She said that the Indian version of the well-liked Spanish television series Elite, Class, was a wonderful representation of a timely and potent tale about a class difference. The plot will now have an Indian flavour, with a diverse cast of characters from various backgrounds dealing with an unexpected turn of events. This trip will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The show shows the problems, feelings, and tensions that young people deal with every day in an honest way. They eagerly anticipate our members seeing this gripping series.

Ashim Ahluwalia, the director, was excited about the release of the trailer. He said that adapting a show that is popular all over the world was hard, especially since he wanted to change the cinematic language and set it in New Delhi. The director wanted to make something real and interesting that showed how strong feelings can be in adolescence. Additionally, Ahluwalia was interested in learning more about the concept of Class, which is something we all experience on a regular basis but is rarely accurately portrayed on television or in movies.

He went on to say that Class is a wild and explosive relationship between the two, taking place in a world where the Elite have everything they could possibly want, aside from a clear conscience, while the less fortunate must manoeuvre their way through deadly situations. The director is grateful to Netflix for supporting this show's unique vision and never giving up hope that they could make something truly special.

They had a team that worked diligently and a cast that was terrific, youthful, and fresh, almost all of them were recent discoveries who looked amazing on screen. He believes it's safe to say that the makers now have a series that hasn't been seen before in India.

Promises are broken, friendships are abandoned, and the students at this prestigious school appear to be in for a real spin despite the words said and vows taken! High school dramas should make way for Netflix's "Class," which is ready to ratchet up the heat this February.
