On the anniversary of demonetization, Disney+ Hotstar released the trailer for their demonetization drama, Cash. (Other films in this genre include Anurag Kashyap’s Choked) Serial entrepreneur Armaan (Amol Parashar), with a questionable sense of business, wants to become “India ka Elon Musk”. When Prime Minister Modi demonetized Rs 500 and 100 notes, he finds an opportunity to convert black to white and take a cut from it. The film is a throwback to the chaos of people waiting in lines, trying to look for solutions, believing theories of the inbuilt chip in the new currency through which money can be tracked.
Also starring Smriti Kaira, Kavin Dave, Swanand Kirkire and Gulshan Grover, the film produced by Vishesh Bhatt and directed by Rishab Seth, Cash premieres on Disney+ Hotstar on 19th November.
