Umbrella Academy writer Sneha Koorse pitched the “comedic noir inspired by one of India’s worst-kept secrets: Big-city gangsters used Bollywood films as a front to launder drug money.”

Badmash will “adopt the taut dialogue, tangled character webs and complex romance of the crime genre set against the backdrop of 1980s Mumbai at the height of the underworld’s power in the film industry. The goal is to make an English-language film with an South Asian ensemble cast, blending genre and culture to create a truly internationally feeling feature.”

“We started ColorCreative to give a platform to stories that the traditional studio system tends to overlook, stories like Badmash,” Issa said in a statement.
