Streamer Disney+ Hotstar on Wednesday announced that its upcoming series ‘School of Lies’ starring Nimrat Kaur will premiere on its platform on June 2.
Produced by BBC Studios, the eight-episode mystery drama show is directed by Avinash Arun Dhware. It also stars Aamir Bashir, Geetika Vidya Ohlyan, Sonali Kulkarni and Jitendra Joshi along with Varin Rupani, Divyansh Dwivedi, Aryan Singh Ahlawat, Hemant Kher, Parthiv Shetty, Adrija Sinha and Alekh Kapoor. The web series is part of the Hotstar Specials slate of content made in India for the Indian audience of the streaming service.
School of Lies is set in the fictional Dalton Town, surrounded by hills, where a 12-year-old boy disappears from RISE, a private boarding school, and causes a subsequent domino effect as the truth is just as complex, It is as simple as that. A tale of shame, anger, and grief, the story explores various stakeholders as the mystery unfolds—young boys on the verge of adulthood, an aging teacher with a terrible secret, a distant counselor with a moral conflict, and A bewildered mother in denial.
Kaur plays the role of Nandita Mehra, the school counselor, and the actress has said that she learned about the layered complexities of children and how they can reveal a new side to them at every step. The series is said to be inspired by real-life events, unfolding surprisingly unpredictable events behind the closed gates of a fictional boarding school.
“Playing the highly complex role of a Guidance Counselor in this establishment with the dilemma of choosing between the right and necessary course of action in unprecedented life situations was not only highly rewarding but also an experience that will always be close to my heart.” Kaur said. The series features a strong focus on themes of child abuse, and will have an eight episode run for the season.
