The third installment of Hansal Mehta’s ‘Scam’ series ‘Scam 2010: The Subrata Roy Saga’ is officially announced. The story will be centered around entrepreneur Subrata Roy who was caught in a whirlwind of vile accusations from chit-fund manipulations to fake investors ultimately leading to his arrest in 2014. The series will be based on Tamal Bandyopadhyay’s book on Roy who passed away last year named ‘Sahara: the Untold Story’.Roy’s company Sahara India Pariwar is seemingly not impressed with the development of this project and they also shared their disappointment through an official statement. Let’s check out the complete details of this story.

Sahara said using the word scam in the Hansal Mehta helmed series is violating their reputation 

Sahara said in the statement, “An abusive and grossly condemnable act has been demonstrated by the makers of ‘Scam’ to achieve cheap and wide publicity, by announcing to unveil, ‘Scam 2010: The Subrata Roy Saga’. Sahara India Pariwar condemns such acts of all the individuals and parties involved and shall resist to their offending behavior. In this regard, the aggrieved members are seeking advice to take suitable legal action against the Producer, Director and all those who are involved in making the illegal portrayal.”

It also stated,“Sahara India Pariwar believes that the dispute between SEBI and Sahara is still pending before Hon’ble Supreme Court and any attempt to influence the proceedings of the said case shall attract contempt of Court, besides such acts amount to criminality. In the garb of a right of free Speech and expression, no one can be allowed to undermine the goodwill and reputation of a person, who is not available to defend himself.”

“The use of the word ‘scam’ in the title of the so-called web series and linking it to Sahara seems prima-facie defamatory, and tends to lower down the image and reputation of Saharasri Ji and Sahara India Pariwar. Sahara India Pariwar has never been involved in any chit fund activity. Even the Sahara-SEBI issue was a dispute on the SEBI’s jurisdiction on OFCD bonds issued by Sahara,” the statement noted. 

Following the triumph of the last two series fans were extremely excited for this third installment as well. However, things seem to get heated with this feud. The makers of the series are yet to respond to this statement.

The series will stream on Sony LIV.
