Ashim Ahluwalia on making 'Class' for an Indian audience

Ashim Ahluwalia, a film director and screenwriter, discussed the difficulties in creating the online series "Class" and translating the Spanish drama "Elite" for an Indian audience. He claimed that keeping the characters from the original plot was the biggest duty.

He shared: “‘Class’ is an Indian adaptation of the global series ‘Elite’, and is something I was very excited about. Rather than just making a localised copy, I used the Spanish show in the way that one would use a source novel as a starting point for something altogether new. It’s not just about recreating a show for Indian audiences, but also about bringing a unique perspective and cultural context to the story.”

Ashim Ahluwalia elaborated more as he shared: “My work generally comes from a very cinematic place and ‘Class‘ was a great opportunity to use the forms I love in a longer, more immersive way. I feel like we have something truly unique, a series that’s true to its roots and that shows us a side of India we haven’t seen on screen before.”

‘Class’ stars Gurfateh Pirzada, Anjali Sivaraman, Piyush Khati, Zeyn Shaw, Ayesha Kanga, Chayan Chopra, Naina Bhan, Chintan Rachchh, Moses Koul, Cwaayal Singh and Madhyama Segal.
