As per reports, the storyline will revolve around the much-discussed topic of nepotism vs merit and showcase how talent is the only game changer and how people from diverse backgrounds fit in and find place in Bollywood.
Emraan Hashmi, who was last seen in the 2021 supernatural horror film Dybbuk, will play the lead role in Show Time.
“We are doing a show with Karan Johar called Showtime, the one who has taken so much heat on the topic of nepotism is coming around and is going to tell the story of how all this fits in Bollywood. It’s a story about a studio and which direction it will take. Will it go in favour of bloodline or will it go with merit!,” said Gaurav Banerjee, content head, Disney+Hotstar.
