Excited about ‘Showtime’, Emraan said in a statement, “Being in the industry for so long, I have seen both the good and bad side of it, so when this show came to me, I grabbed the opportunity of being a part of it and could resonate with it on various levels. Disney+ Hotstar and Dharmatic Entertainment have been known to be some of the most quality storytellers in the industry and collaborating with them has been an incredible experience. We have always seen the audience longing to know more about what goes on behind the closed doors of Bollywood and let me just say – we have heard you all! Get ready to dive deep into the tales of Bollywood!”

Mouni Roy, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajeev Khandelwal, and Shriya Saran are also a part of ‘Showtime’.

Karan shared that “Showtime is a series that is very close to my heart.”

“It gives a closer look into the power struggles of the showbiz. The show will ensure that battle lines are drawn and crossed and keep the camera rolling with the audiences clapping,” he added.
