Hotstar has confirmed that it has acquired the rights to remake hit BBC thriller ‘Doctor Foster’ in Hindi.
The show will be directed by filmmakers Tigmanshu Dhulia and Aijza Khan, and helmed by BBC Studios. It will launch later in the year.
BBC Studios’ business head of production India, Sameer Gogate, said, “The original ‘Doctor Foster’ has a tremendous following internationally, and we believe that an Indian version will work very well in our region.”
Earlier, Hotstar had adapted Hindi versions of other international shows ‘Luther’ and ‘Criminal Justice’.
