1992 Fraud: The Harshad Mehta story follows the meteoric rise and subsequent demise of the stockbroker Harshad Mehta who was implicated in the 1992 stock market fraud. The series stars Pratik Gandhi as Harshad with an ensemble cast that includes Shreya Dhanwanthary, Satish Kaushik, and others.
The Hindustan Times review of the show called it a “fascinating watch”. “By giving the audience the context and perspective they need, a series on a subject as dry as securities fraud becomes a 500-minute binge-worthy observation.
