Sony LIV is bringing lots of exciting movies and shows after getting a facelift. As a part of its plan to go toe to toe with the streaming giants in India, Sony LIV is collaborating with some big names in the industry. Sony LIV has already announced some exciting new originals, and it is working with Vipul Shah on a new show.
Sony LIV will release a medical thriller by Vipul Shah in August. Vipul’s production company Blockbuster Movie Entertainers is making this new web series, Doctor. This new series will feature Shabana Azmi as well as Shefali Shah in prominent roles. The director for Doctor is Mozez Singh who worked on Vicky Kaushal starrer Zubaan (2015). Mozez is also the co-writer of this show alongside Ishani Banerjee.
The makers of the web series claim that a real-life incident that shook the nation inspired this show. The show is about human drug testing menace in the medical field. Shefali will play the role of a doctor, whereas Shabana Azmi would be the owner of the hospital.
Official description states, “The mind-bending thriller revolves around their characters and the unique, conflicting relationship they share, and addresses the extremely important and pertinent topic of medical scam happening in the country.”
At present, the show is called Doctor and is one of the four premia shows that Sony LIV is bringing out in the next couple of months. The other three shows as Avrodh: The Siege Within, Scam 1992, and Undekhi.
