Tentatively called A Family, the show is a crime drama set in the backdrop of Mumbai mafia land. Vivek will portray the role of Sharad Juvatkar in the series. Alt Balaji has been delivering back to back hits. Its recent shows The Test Case starring Nimrat Kaur and Haq Se with Rajeev Khandelwal and Surveen Chawla in the lead has garnered much appreciation from the viewers. Rajkummar Rao starrer Bose: Dead/Alive in 2017 also brought laurels to Ekta Kapoor.
