I Am Gravitated Towards Real-Life Stories: Nikkhil Advani On Mumbai Diaries 26/11

Mumbai: The impressive trailer of Amazon Prime Video’s highly-anticipated original Mumbai Diaries 26/11 that was launched recently at Mumbai’s iconic monument The Gateway of India, has been receiving an encouraging response from the viewers who couldn’t stop raving about the fictional edge-of-the-seat medical drama.

Created by Nikkhil Advani, produced by Monisha Advani and Madhu Bhojwani of Emmay Entertainment, and jointly directed by Nikkhil and Nikhil Gonsalves, the series depicts the untold story of doctors, nurses, paramedics and hospital staff who worked tirelessly to save lives during the terror attacks that devastated the city on November 26, 2008. It features an array of talented artistes, including Konkona Sen Sharma, Mohit Raina, Tina Desai, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Satyajeet Dubey, Natasha Bharadwaj, Mrunmayee Deshpande and Prakash Belawadi.

During the pre-production stage, Nikkhil had the opportunity to interact with a few frontline warriors who saved Mumbai city post 26/11 attacks and understand their inspiring stories.

Sharing his experience of having in-depth conversations with these frontline warriors, Nikkhil says, “I am a Mumbaikar and I love the city, its resilience, the fact that it never gives up, it never sleeps and all the lovely ways of describing the city but we tend to forget the people who are responsible for making it what it is. When Aparna and I started talking about working on a show, we thought of making a medical drama. I told her, ‘let’s talk about guys who are at war every single day.’ And that’s what we have tried to do with Mumbai Diaries, to tell the stories of unlikely heroes who nobody actually talks about and takes them for granted.”

“Fact is stranger than fiction. I am gravitated towards telling real-life stories. You just have to listen to people and their incredible stories. I have been fortunate enough to be allowed to do that, thanks to Amazon Prime Video,” Nikkhil adds.
