A brand-new online series called Scoop, created by Hansal Mehta, will be available to watch on Netflix soon. Scoop, based on Jigna Vora's book Behind The Bars In Byculla: My Days in Prison, is promoted as a serious drama that tells the story of Jagruti Pathak, an aspiring crime journalist. When Jaideb Sen, a colleague journalist, is brutally murdered, she is accused of the crime and is forced to share a cell with the people she used to write about, shattering her world.
The series' official teaser, which was posted on Saturday, has a person explaining how reporter Jagruti Pathak incited him to assassinate Jaideb Sen. After Jaideb Sen, a fellow journalist, is brutally murdered, she is accused of the crime and is forced to share a cell with the people she used to write about, shattering her world. The infamous Chhota Rajan is among the others accused, along with a reputed sharpshooter as well as a dishonest bookmaker. While she endures a trial, the information is surreptitiously withheld. The plot, which is set in Mumbai in 2011, shows a series of incidents that have an impact on the criminal reporter Jagruti. Will Jagruti succeed in her fair play?
The filmmaker described the preview when he shared it on social media with, "Based on true events, a thrilling tale of a fight for the truth.
