Education scams are common, but one you probably haven’t heard of is the roll number scam. Disney+ Hotstar’s Patna Shukla will expose this rarely spoken-about scam and Producer Arbaaz Khan has opened up on why this story is important to tell.

Opening about the same, Arbaaz Khan, producer of Disney+ Hotstar’s Patna Shukla said, “When I read the script of Patna Shukla, I was inspired by it. It evoked so many emotions in me, it was unreal, even though I’ve not experienced something like this in real life, the way characters navigated each experience was so relatable and of course Raveena! I couldn’t have imagined anyone else playing Tanvi Shukla. From the minute I read about Tanvi and Raveena being in the talks, I said “Let’s set that in stone,” this needs to happen only with Raveena for the amazing actress she is. As a story, Patna Shukla had to be told to create conversations about such education scams, and I was ready to do anything to bring this project to life. When the audience watches the film on Disney+ Hotstar, they’ll know what I’m talking about and hopefully, resonate with it.”
