After the astounding success of Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, director Hansal Mehta is all set to return with Scam 2003 which is based on the 2003 Stamp Paper Scam by Abdul Karim Telgi.
The project has been tentatively titled Scam 2003: The Curious Case of Abdul Karim Telgi and will be adapted from the book Reporter ki Diary written by journalist Sanjay Singh who broke the news about the scam at that time.
It is estimated that Telgi’s 2003 scam is worth Ã¢Â‚Â¹20,000 crores. “The new season of this franchise will focus on another riveting story that shook the country a few years ago – the stamp paper scam. I am looking forward to collaborating again with team Applause, SonyLIV and StudioNEXT, partners who think alike and encourage creative thought,” Hansal said in a statement.
