Vivek Oberoi and Richa Chaddha are bringing a story, much needed to be told, to the audience in form of an original web series for Amazon India called the 'Inside Edge'. 

The series will put light on some of the darkest realities of the highly glamorous world of premiere cricket tournaments in the country that grab almost all the headlines every day during its tenure and involves the biggest names of Bollywood and business in the so-called 'event of the year'.

'Inside Edge' talks about one such fictional tournament consisting of one of the teams as 'Mumbai Mavericks', owned by fading actor Zarina Malik (Richa Chadha), headed by the honest but complicated Arvind (Angad Bedi) and coached by Niranjan (Sanjay Suri). The team’s star player is a moody arrogant Vayu Raghavan (Tanuj Virwani) who is a drug addict and sleeps with cheerleaders before the match. 

Problems began when Zarina realises that she needs a partner to run her team financially well. Thus enters the man - Vikrant Dhawan (Vivek Oberoi) who often likes to say slangs like 'Let the game begin'!

The series is inspired from several cricketing scandals that have followed up in the last couple of years in India. 

Written by Karan Anshuman, the series has a crackling and subtle screenplay which will engage the viewer instantly. It has its dark, funny and real sides to the story and looks like an honest effort to tell what this bizarre world of cricket and entertainment is. 

'Inside Edge' is an overall winner and the audience will definitely see the rawness and a fresh approach to the story.
