Hansal Mehta’s popular web series Scam 1992 won everyone’s hearts. The show that is based on Harshad Mehta’s life is considered one of the best OTT shows. Well, today, the show marks its third anniversary and on this occasion, Hansal Mehta wrote a heartfelt note describing the efforts that went into making the series. He also noted that not many platforms initially believed in his project. He also gave credit to the entire team for providing support.
Sharing a poster featuring Pratik Gandhi, he wrote, “And then our lives changed… 3 years of #Scam1992. The year was 2017. I was not so sure about what I was doing with my life as a filmmaker. Ideas were running out, I was plagued by self-doubt and my mental as well as physical health was low. @sameern had just begun the @applausesocial journey. He offered me this story. I jumped at it and latched on as if I’d found the oxygen I needed to live. A lot happened in the interim as @sumitpurohit @commonstilt @ofnosurnamefame and @karanvyas11 wrote this show – all this while a certain @pratikgandhiofficial waited patiently in the wings for this show to begin. Comrades in arms @pratham94 @jaihmehta and @inchak1601 waited patiently with @segaldeepak @jhavarpriya as we prepared and prepared for something we knew was going to be good but maybe with an uncertain future. We shot through 2019 and early 2020, post-produced the show through the pandemic and successive lockdowns.”
