Netflix has described the documentary series as an investigative series which will “explore the greed, fraud, and corruption that brought down India’s most infamous tycoons”. The trailer of the series shows that the series will be highlighting the lives of Mehul Choksi’s nephew Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya, Subrata Roy, and Ramalinga Raju


During the hearing, Choksi’s lawyer has mentioned that his client demands to be shown a preview and is not seeking a say on the documentary. Netflix has assured the court that in the entire series, the coverage given to Mehul Choksi is just for two minutes. Choksi’s lawyer has expressed his client’s concern that the series might influence the ongoing probe in the Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank fraud case where both Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi are accused.


The Delhi HC has sought a reply from Netflix and scheduled the next hearing for August 28.


Mehul Choksi along with his nephew Nirav Modi and his wife Ami Modi have fled from India. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has charged them for conspiring and money laundering under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The Interpol issued a red notice against Ami on Tuesday.
