“I am actually quite curious about this. I was thinking how cool would it be to have an Indian True Detective.

Bollywood filmmaker Nikkhil Advani, another panellist, agreed with him.

“It would be a great show,” said Advani, whose upcoming TV show POW Bandi Yuddh Ke! had its world premiere at the fest.
