The director said he is working on the screenplay and the series will be the first of its kind to be available on both Iranian and Indian platforms.
He also noted that the production team is ready to receive the production permit from the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
The director has negotiated with several Iranian and Indian actors, and will begin shooting as soon as they receive the production permit.
Mohammadpour added he is planning to begin the project after the New Year holidays in Iran.
“Javad Noruzbeigi is the producer of the series, which is quite a different project in comparison to the film ‘Hello Mumbai’,” he added.
To be produced in 20 episodes, seven episodes of the series will be filmed in Mumbai and the rest in Tehran.

He and Karishma, his Indian classmate, fall in love at university, but their love story is very difficult and complicated.
