Many in the Indian film industry know the last name, Bachchan, because of the famous Amitabh. Abhishek, his son, has since continued to carry on the name in the industry after having been part of many hit movies. You may remember Abhishek as Shankar Nagre in the 'Government' series, Gurukant Desai in 'Guru' (2007), and Inder Bhalla in 'All is Well' (2015), Jai Dixit in the 'Dhoom' series and yes even the mushy role of Rishi Talwar in 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' (2006).

The series is created and produced by Abundantia Entertainment and created and directed by Mayank Sharma. Bhavani Iyer, Arshad Sayed, Mayank Sharma, and Vikram Tuli serve as writers. Vikram Malhotra serves as an executive producer.
