MUMBAI: When it comes to versatile and cutting edge content creation and immaculate storytelling, one can't help but mention Siddharth Kumar Tewary at the top of that list. His ability to not just, see potential in a concept, but also break it down so effectively for audiences is undeniable. And now, he's all set to take that very fact to a whole new level! After successfully creating and kickstarting the shoot for his tech thriller series - Escaype Live, Tewary is getting prepped to finalize the script and rollout the Indian remake of the Spanish thriller - The Cleaning Lady (La Chica Que Limpia) under his banner - One Life Studios.

The series is being obviously reworked and rewired to suit the Indian pallette and culture. The show was one of the most talked about pieces of international content and a number of creators were vying for its Indian remake rights. But it comes as no surprise that Tewary snagged it past all to become the proud recreator of this nail-biting gritty story.

Not just that, I believe that this is a story with many universal themes and plot points which makes an impact on viewers all over. India, being such a burgeoning content hub, has evolved tremendously in their viewing choices with exposure to such myriad content options. We have a really solid team writing the show to suit the Indian palette while maintaining its international appeal and global storytelling style with consistent guidance from the original international creators of the show."
