THE BIG BULL
Harshad Mehta, commonly known as the Big Bull of India, led a life no less attractive than the films. His story was a real-life hero for the masses of India; his story took rounds everywhere. After all, he managed to go dirt to diamond and then a diamond to downfall. Known as the Amitabh Bachchan of Stock Market, Harshad Mehta was a natural larger-than-life person who single-handedly changed the Indian Banking System.
Such DALAL & INDIAN JOURNALISM
While the web-series follows the life of the Big Bull, it was Sucheta Dalal and once compelling & efficient Indian Journalism that exposed one of the greatest frauds ever. Sucheta Dalal is an independent woman who was a business journalist and the financial editor of Times Of India. She received Padma Shri for journalism in 2006 and has exposed several scams, one of them being the scam of 1992.
Starring Pratik Gandhi as Harshad Mehta and Shreya Dhanwanthary as Sucheta Dalal, Hansal Mehta has brought together a pheno- mental bunch of actors that don’t fail in delivering memorable performances. Pratik Gandhi is a well-acclaimed Gujarati theatre artist, while Shreya is known for critically acclaimed shows like Family Man and Why Cheat India. Rajat Kapoor shines in the cast too.
INDIA’S LARGEST FINANCIAL SCAM
The Harshad Mehta scam changed the face of the Indian Stock Market. It was a scam of 5000 crores and affected everyone from the Indian Banking System to thousands of families that lost their money. A security fraud that would be remembered for years as the scam that brought Indian Finance crashing down as a single man first took it to dizzying heights and then brought it crumbling to the ground.
HERO OR VILLAIN?
Despite committing one of the greatest frauds ever, Harshad Mehta was revered by people; after all, there is only one thing common between the world’s most significant criminals and the world’s most prominent change-makers; they are both crazy genius. Known as a flawed hero, Harshad Mehta was the man of the middle-class, a living example of rags to riches.
