Hansal Mehta’s Riveting Series ‘Scam 2003: The Telgi Story’ Premieres on SonyLIV, Teaser Unveiled

The upcoming web series Scam 2003: The Telgi Story will premiere on Sony LIV on September 2. The series is based on the life of Abdul Karim Telgi, who is infamous for running one of the biggest stamp paper scams in India.

The scam, which took place in the early 2000s, involved the production and sale of counterfeit stamp papers. Telgi and his associates were able to counterfeit the stamps with such precision that they were indistinguishable from the real thing. This allowed them to sell the fake stamps to businesses and individuals at a significant profit.

The scam is estimated to have cost the Indian government over ₹100 billion (US$1.3 billion). It also had a significant impact on the economy, as it undermined the trust in the Indian government and its financial institutions. The web series Scam 2003: The Telgi Story will be directed by Hansal Mehta, who also directed the first season of the series, Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. The series will star Pratik Gandhi as Telgi and Shriya Pilgaonkar as his wife, Shama.

The web series will remain a gripping and suspenseful drama over the OTT platform landscape, which is going to unveil the light over the infamous financial scams in Indian politics history. At the same time, it will act as a cautionary tale regarding the lethal impact of greed and corruption. Well, at least by looking at the teaser, you can make out, have a look at it and let us know how did you find it:
