Set parallel to the evolution of both India and the movies, ‘Jubilee’ unveils the stories and dreams that gave birth to the Hindi film industry as we know it.

“ ‘Jubilee’ is a celebration of the magic of cinema. It is an homage to all the artistes and technicians who weave this magic on screen for us. The story follows the trials and tribulations of three young characters as they set out on their journey to become a part of the film industry,” said Aparna Purohit, head of India Originals, ‘Prime Video’.
Vikramaditya Motwane added, “ ‘Jubilee’ has been a love story in the making for me ever since I was an assistant director enamored with the world of the movies, even when there wasn’t a story to tell.”
“While the series is set in that celebrated era of cinema, at its core, ‘Jubilee’ is a very human story, with narrative themes that will resonate with everyone - which is what drew me to the story in the first place. We’ve painstakingly researched each aspect of the series to remain true to its era. It’s been the most incredible journey made with the support of a terrific studio, with some of the most amazing actors and with the best possible crew ever,” he added.
