Filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala is working on a film and a web series based on the multi-million dollar call centre scam that rocked the city in 2016.

The principal work on Firoz Nadiadwala’s latest production titled Hot Shots Dare to Dream is presently underway.

The producer is famous for making multi-starrer comedy films like Hera Pheri, Welcome series and Aarakshan among others.

According to the press release issued by the makers, Hot Shots is based on the real-life scam in which US-based taxpayers were targeted by tele-callers from more than half a dozen call-centres in Mira Road, Mumbai, India. The racket defrauded thousands of US citizens and residents of approximately US 300 million dollars equivalent to INR 2,100 crores.

“After acquiring the rights of this real-life scam story for a movie and web series, we have been developing the content for over two years now and are confident with the final script. We have decided to give it a dual format release, this is the first time a film, as well as an extended version as a web series, will be released on a major OTT platform.

“Hot Shots is an edge of the seat human drama that has all the elements of a thriller complete with emotions, wit, friendship, ambition, greed and power struggle,” web series co-producers, Arjun Kumar and Farid Sama, said in a statement.

The film is produced by Base Industries Group, it will be filmed in real locations in Mumbai, Dubai and New York.
