Synopsis

Rizwan Ahmed is tired of playing the small game. He dreams of being the King of Mumbai. Fighting his own doubts, Rizwan takes the leap and moves to Mumbai where he finds himself one step closer to his God, Shakun Kothari. Shakun Kothari is the King of the Stock Market. Starting out as an angadia in Surat he is now counted in the 0.01 % of the country’s elite, rich businessmen. Baazaar is, at once, the story of Rizwan, the street-smart, dreamy-eyed small town boy who wants to make it big desperately and Shakun, the cold shark of the business world who wants everything. Both their worlds will collide, and this collision will create waves across the city, across the trading floors, across the political circles. And caught in this whirlwind will be: Mandira Kothari - Shakun’s wife, a philanthropist, the daughter of his mentor and mother to his two daughters; Priya Rai - a head strong and ambitious stock market trader, fighting her own demons, Rizwan’s colleague and love interest; Sandeep Doshi - high rolling businessman, Shakun’s old friend and current enemy; Rana Dasgupta - sharp and alert, SEBI Chief, hot on the tracks of Shakun Kothari. Mumbai - the city of dreams. Brutal, fast, enormous. A city that pushes you. In or out. There’s no in between; And finally, each and every one of you. “Main maths pehle karta hun, baat baad mein...” - Shakun Kothari
