Mumbai: Actor Vivek Oberoi's character in the actor's debut web series is reportedly inspired by former Indian Premiere League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi.
- The web series is being shot in Mumbai
- It also stars Richa Chadha, whose role is inspired by Preity Zinta
- The web series also stars Angad Bedi and Gulshan Devaiah
Bangistan director Karan Anshuman's 12-part web series, titled Power Play is based on cricket tournament Indian Premiere League (IPL) and the controversies surrounding it in the recent years.
Starring Vivek, Richa Chadda, Angad Bedi and Gulshan Devaiah, the web series is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment.
Vivek's, 40, character is inspired by the former tainted cricket administrator, says sources. No official confirmation regarding it has come from the makers yet.
Mr Modi was sacked in 2010 as Commissioner of the IPL after he was named in a scandal in the IPL over alleged money laundering. He is currently on a self-imposed exile in UK.
Meanwhile, Richa's character is said to be inspired by Preity Zinta, who co-owns IPL team Kings XI Punjab while Angad's role is loosely modelled on Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Gulshan will play a cricketer with grey shades. The web series is being shot in Mumbai and it might go on air by the end of this year.
