MUMBAI: Class of ‘83, a cop drama directed by Atul Sabharwal and produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, will release exclusively on Netflix on August 21, 2020.
Set in Bombay in the early 80’s, Class of ‘83 is the story of Dean Vijay Singh (Bobby Deol), a police officer-turned-instructor, who takes five young cadets under his wings to fight corruption brought upon by the underworld of Bombay in the 1980’s. It is adapted from ‘Class of 83: The Punishers of Mumbai Police’ by Hussain Zaidi.
Director Atul Sabharwal said: “This project was extremely interesting and the whole crew helped bring the era of the 80’s to life, which was a big challenge. People will see Bobby as they have never seen him before and the cast of newcomers is phenomenal in the film.”
Producer Gaurav Verma (Red Chillies Entertainment) commented: “Hussain sahab’s book provided the source material for a story, co-developed with Netflix, which draws inspiration from the gritty story of Mumbai, and in Atul we have a director whose sensibilities complemented the vision for this film. This is the first RCE film with Netflix and the story has potential to resonate globally.”
The cop drama will also feature Annup Sonii, Vishwajeet Pradhan, and Joy Sengupta.
