Hotstar has launched the trailer of its next Hotstar Special titled ‘City of Dreams’, a political thriller directed by Nagesh Kukunoor. The show features Priya Bapat, Siddharth Chandekar, Eijaz Khan, Atul Kulkarni and Sachin Pilgaonkar.
Set in Mumbai against the backdrop of Indian politics and elections, the show traces the journey of two siblings - Poornima and Ashish Gaikwad - and their thirst for power. City of Dreams has been produced by Applause Entertainment and marks their second partnership with Hotstar after ‘Criminal Justice’.
Varun Narang, Chief Product Officer at Hotstar said, “We are aiming to create big bold and path breaking content for Hotstar Specials. ‘City of Dreams’ is an exciting political thriller, perfectly timed with the election fever in the country. We are delighted with the response to ‘Roar of the Lion’ and ‘Criminal Justice’ and hope that our viewers will enjoy City of Dreams equally."
Sameer Nair, CEO Applause Entertainment said, “The real-life nexus between politics, crime and industry makes for fertile ground to tell a compelling multi-season drama series. With ‘City of Dreams’, we wanted to explore this genre. Triggered by an assassination attempt of a powerful political leader, a chain of events unfold threatening to engulf the entire city in a firestorm of ambition, deceit and revenge. Nagesh has an innate understanding of the craft and has sculpted this high-end political drama with several layers. Headlined by a stellar ensemble cast, we’re excited to present this offering to our audiences.”
