Scam 2003: The Telgi Story 

The month gets off to a flier as Sony Liv is back to give audiences a series on another scamster. After the resounding success of Scam 1992 The Harshad Mehta Story, it's time to watch Abdul Karim Telgi, the infamous con artist, shake the stamp paper market with a fraud worth Rs 30,000 crore. An adaptation of a Hindi book titled Telgi Scam: Reporter Ki Diary by Sanjay Singh, the series will see actor Gagan Dev Diar play the lead character of the man who starts as a fruit seller only to become the kingpin of the stamp paper scam. With the help of a corrupt system, he rapidly monopolises the stamp market, filling everyone's pocket in the food chain, while carefully maintaining a low profile. Little does he know that in the chase for quick money, he’s soon to land on the wrong side of the law.

Sex Education: Season 4

With the final season of one of our favourite shows on Netflix just being a few days away, everyone’s got just one question on their mind—will Otis and Maeve end up together? We have been rooting for the two Moordale students from season one and really hope that the duo, who started a sex clinic together get their happy ending. Another question on everyone's mind is, will Otis and Eric be nervous about settling in in Cavendish? Are they going to face a culture shock? We can’t wait to find out. Over in the USA, Maeve is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, unaware of the fact that Otis is pining after her, while adjusting to not being an only child at home or the only therapist on campus. 

Sex Education season 4 will be led by Asa Butterfield as Otis Milburn, as well as Gillian Anderson (Jean, Otis's mom), Ncuti Gatwa (Eric Effiong), Emma Mackey (Maeve Wiley), Aimee-Lou Wood (Aimee Gibbs), Connor Swindells (Adam Groff), and Kedar Williams-Stirling (Jackson Marchetti). That’s not all as Schitt's Creek favourite Dan Levy is joining the cast as Thomas Molloy, a renowned cult author who is tutoring Maeve during her time in the US.

Release date: September 21 on Netflix
