Emraan Hashmi has bounced back to the mainstream headlines and there is no way he is in the mood to go back into his hiatus again. The actor recently seen in Tiger 3 alongside Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif is now back to entertain us all. Emraan is all set to make his second OTT outing after Bard Of Blood, with a show called Showtime, which will be released on Disney+ Hotstar and backed by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment. The first look for the same has now dropped on the internet and is everything showbiz. 

Produced by Dharmatic Entertainment, created by Sumit Roy and showrunner Mihir Desai, and directed by Mihir Desai and Archit Kumar, Showtime will delve into the unseen world that lies behind the camera. The first-look teaser gives us a gateway into this world of films and what happens behind the scenes. The drama is top-notch as the Emraan Hashmi-led show also stars Rasika Duggal, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajeev Khandelwal, and many others. 

The official synopsis for Showtime reads, “An epic saga of legacy and ambition in the world of cinema, Showtime will give you a sneak peek into what goes behind the multi-million dollar industry of Bollywood, nepotism, and the power struggles at the top.” 

Karan Johar, founder and managing director of Dharmatic Entertainment said, “Showtime is a series that is very close to my heart, it gives a closer look into the power struggles of showbiz. The show will ensure that battle lines are drawn and crossed & keep the camera rolling with the audience clapping. To tell a story so strong and powerful there could not have been a better partner than Disney+ Hotstar. We are extremely excited and eager to bring forth this one for the audience and hope they enjoy the series.”

Emraan Hashmi said, “Being in the industry for so long, I have seen both the good and bad side of it, so when this show came to me, I grabbed the opportunity of being a part of it and could resonate with it on various levels. Disney+ Hotstar and Dharmatic Entertainment have been known to be some of the most quality storytellers in the industry and collaborating with them has been an incredible experience. We have always seen the audience longing to know more about what goes on behind the closed doors of Bollywood and let me just say - we have heard you all! Get ready to dive deep into the tales of Bollywood!”
