India streaming platform Hotstar is releasing Nagesh Kukunoor’s political thriller City of Dreams on 3 May.

Hotstar logo 23 April 2019Starring Priya Bapat, Siddharth Chandekar, Eijaz Khan, Atul Kulkarni, and Sachin Pilgaonkar, City of Dreams is the third of the Hotstar Specials series of originals being streamed for the platform’s premium subscribers.

Produced by Applause Entertainment, City of Dreams will be available in seven different Indian languages: Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.

Set in Mumbai against a political backdrop, the show traces the journey of two siblings – Poornima and Ashish Gaikwad – and their thirst for power. The brother-sister duo will stop at nothing in their all-out battle to become the one true heir to their father’s legacy.

“We are aiming to create big bold and path-breaking content for Hotstar Specials. City of Dreams is an exciting political thriller, perfectly timed with the election fever in the country. We are delighted with the response to Roar of the Lion and Criminal Justice  and hope that our viewers will enjoy City of Dreams equally,” and Varun Narang, chief product officer, Hotstar.

Applause Entertainment CEO Sameer Nair added: “The real-life nexus between politics, crime and industry makes for fertile ground to tell a compelling multi-season drama series. With the City of Dreams, we wanted to explore this genre. Triggered by an assassination attempt of a powerful political leader, a chain of events unfold threatening to engulf the entire city in a firestorm of ambition, deceit, and revenge.

“Nagesh has an innate understanding of the craft and has sculpted this high-end political drama with several layers. Headlined by a stellar ensemble cast, we’re excited to present this offering to our audiences.”
