The series, which is supposed to be begins on September 2, will be based on author Kingshuk Nag’s book The Double Life of Ramalinga Raju

According to media reports, the web series will be produced by Applause Entertainment and will debut on streaming platform SonyLIV.

In a media statement, Nagesh Kukunoor said --

The Double Life of Ramalinga Raju has been an interesting read and I am delighted to be a part of this visionary project. It has been a wonderful experience collaborating with Applause Entertainment during City of Dreams and I now look forward to once again embark on a new journey – this time with a riveting biopic thriller.

Currently out on bail, Byrraju Ramalinga Raju is the former chairman and CEO of Satyam Computer Services, from 1987 until 7 January 2009. Raju stepped down following his admission to embezzlement from the company to the tune of ₹7136 crores, including ₹5040 crores of non-existent cash and bank balances.
