Disney+ Hotstar Announces Mahabharata, Showtime, Koffee With Karan Season 8 At D23 Expo 2022

Disney+ Hotstar is bringing three new Indian titles to its streaming platform – Showtime, Mahabharata and Koffee with Karan Season 8. The announcement was made by the Head of Content at Disney+ Hotstar Gaurav Banerjee on Saturday at the D23 Expo. This event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, United States. These three new shows strengthen the platform’s collaboration with Bollywood producer Karan Johar and form a new partnership with Madhu Mantena, Mythoversestudios and Allu Entertainment.

Banerjee participated in an international content panel at the D23 Expo to “discuss eclectic global content trends, particularly highlighting Disney+ Hotstar’s role in shaping content in India and beyond”. Here, he announced that Showtime, Mahabharata and Koffee with Karan Season 8 will be released on the streaming platform soon.

During the announcement, Johar expressed his excitement at the return of his talk show, which first aired nearly 18 years ago, for another season. He revealed that Dharma Production will also be releasing a new fiction series titled Showtime. It will be a drama series that will try to bring out the trade secrets of the Indian entertainment industry.

Mahabharata, on the other hand, will be based on one of the greatest epics of ancient India. Due to the battle for the succession between the princes of Pandava and Kaurava, it will speak of the ultimate conflict between “dharma” and “adharma”. There are no details available on the cast of this show at this time.

Disney’s D23 Expo kicked off on Saturday and will run through September 11. During this annual event, studios such as Disney, Pixar and Marvel will showcase their future projects. Trailers for The Little Mermaid, Amy Adams-led Disenchanted, and Hocus Pocus 2 have already been revealed. Marvel also unveiled the trailer for the tactical role-playing game Midnight Suns and a self-titled game that pits Captain America and Black Panther against each other.
