Madhuri Dixit Nene’s Netflix series Finding Anamika has a new title and release date. Finding Anamika is now being called The Fame Game – and it will release on February 25 on Netflix in India and around the world, the streaming service announced on Thursday. In The Fame Game, Dixit Nene plays Bollywood icon Anamika Anand, who apparently “has it all. But is her life perfect or a perfectly crafted facade? In a world of glitz, glamor and fame – the lines of what is real and what is not can often be blurred.” Sri Rao (Baar Baar Dekho) is the showrunner and writer of The Fame Game, with Karan Johar among the producers.
In addition to Dixit Nene, The Fame Game also features Sanjay Kapoor (Sirf Tum), Manav Kaul (Nail Polish), Lakshvir Saran (Paatal Lok), Suhasini Muley (Teen Aur Aadha) and Muskkaan Jaferi (Mismatched). The Fame Game episodes were directed by Bejoy Nambiar (Taish) and Karishma Kohli (Mentalhood). Apoorva Mehta and Somen Mishra serve as producers on The Fame Game alongside Johar. Nisha Mehta, previously announced as a writer with Sri Rao, is now credited as supervising producer on the Netflix Indian series. The Fame Game is a production of Dharmatic Entertainment, the digital record label of Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Finding Anamika was originally announced in December 2019 with Dixit Nene, Johar and Rao attached to an unnamed project. Netflix revealed the title, logline description, and first look at its See What’s Next India event in March of last year. And then, in September, as part of the global TUDUM event, Netflix provided the first teaser for Finding Anamika, now known as The Fame Game. It’s been a long journey for the project, and it’s now set to culminate next month.
The Fame Game will be released on February 25 at 1:30 pm IST on Netflix in India. Bollywood veteran Dixit Nene makes her streaming debut with the Netflix series.
