The first trailer of Disney+ Hotstar and Dharmatic Entertainment's new series, Showtime, which follows the stories of the movers and shakers of Bollywood and their struggles to stay at the top of their game, is out. Leading man of the series, Emraan Hashmi is essaying the role of an influential film producer who takes a dig at nepotism in his opening lines. "Every outsider wants to be an insider," he says. The trailer goes on to establish him as a powerful player in showbiz.

Following the success of Bard of Blood on Netflix, Showtime will mark Hashmi's second outing on a streaming platform. The actor who is known to surprise audiences with his choice of roles had earlier said, "Being in the industry for so long, I have seen both the good and the bad side of it, so when this show came to me, I grabbed the opportunity of being part of it and could resonate with it on various levels. We have always seen the audience longing to know more about what goes on behind the closed doors of Bollywood and let me just say---we have heard you all! Get ready to dive deep into the tales of Bollywood."

Created by Sumit Roy, showrunner Mihir Desai, directed by Mihir Desai and Archit Kumar, the show stars Hashmi, Mahima Makwana, Mouni Roy, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajeev Khandelwal and Shriya Saran. Showtime will stream on Disney+ Hotstar early next year.
