On November 26, the 12th anniversary of dreadful Mumbai terror attacks, Amazon Prime Video unveiled the first look of its upcoming Amazon Original Series Mumbai Diaries 26/11. Created by Nikkhil Advani, the medical drama stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Mohit Raina, Tina Desai and Shreya Dhanwanthary in lead roles. It will premiere in March 2021.
Set in the backdrop of the terror attacks of November 26, 2008, the series plays out in a hospital and depicts the untold story of doctors, nurses, paramedics and hospital staff, who worked tirelessly to save lives during the attacks.
Talking about the show’s theme, Nikkhil Advani says, “We Mumbaikars often discuss where we were on that fateful night when this devastating incident shook the entire city. There have been several shows and films based on the incident but no one has explored the doctors’ side of it. With this medical drama, we aim to champion the human spirit in the face of unprecedented danger and celebrate the brave doctors who had saved the day while keeping the sensitivity of the topic in mind.”
