Filmmaker Hansal Mehta on Thursday (May 16) announced the third edition of his smash hit series "Scam", titled "Scam 2010 - The Subrata Roy Saga", which will be based on the life of businessman Subrata Roy. Based on the book, "Sahara: The Untold Story by Tamal Bandyopadhyay", the series will be produced by Applause Entertainment, in association with Studio Next and it will be helmed by Mehta.

"Scam 2010 is the dust-to-diamonds story of Roy. In the early 2000s, Roy was caught in a whirlwind of accusations ranging from chit-fund manipulations to fake investors, ultimately leading to his arrest in 2014. With approximately Rs 25,000 crore still lying unclaimed with government authorities, the repercussions of the scam continue to reverberate even today," according to the press release issued by the makers.

"'Scam' is not just a franchise for me. It is a chronicling of our times. I'm thrilled to collaborate again with Applause and Sony LIV to bring this larger-than-life story alive," Mehta said in a statement.

The new season is a follow-up to the critically-acclaimed first and second part "Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story" and "Scam 2003: The Telgi Story".

Sameer Nair, Managing Director, Applause Entertainment, said, "Scam" series has become a pop cultural phenomenon. "With 'Scam 2010: The Subrata Roy Saga', we are poised to raise the bar even higher, offering audiences an immersive journey into the life and times of one of the most audacious and ambitious minds in Indian business history," Nair said.

Mehta is yet to announce the cast of the series.
