Commenting the development, Sanjay Gupta says, “I have been waiting for the right material to come by. Crime being my forte and I enjoy the beat very much. Here is a story that deserves to be told in all its glory. She rose from there to create and control the biggest narcotics empire in India. Her case was active till 2015.”

He adds, “She was arrested after 120 kilos of MDMA was found in her residence. Our story traces her rise to power, how she took over what was popularly presumed as a male bastion, her romance with a cop and how she exploited the relationship.

True stories like these are fascinating.” The makers of the series co-produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, are currently discussing the opportunity with a top OTT platform for exhibition.
