A source in the know of the project adds that the series revolves around eight strangers from different parts of the world. “Since India is one of the countries being highlighted on the show, many actors including Anupam Kher, Purab Kohli and Tena Desae have been taken on board. The show will be streamed on Netflix,” the source suggests.
