According to Deadline, the series adaptation chronicles Arif Naqvi (Patel), a charismatic Pakistani businessman who was the founder of Dubai-based private-equity firm Abraaj. Brilliant and inspirational, Naqvi became a global sensation as he built a billion-dollar empire persuading the global elite and titans of industry that the improbable key to solving poverty, hunger and political unrest is through his highly profitable investments.
“Enmeshed in the world of Popes, presidents, and profits, Arif’s empire came crashing down when his false promises proved to have severe consequences,” the outlet further shares. Besides starring, Patel executive produces alongside Scott Delman and Florence Sloan. Set in the Middle East, the project hails from Miramax Television as a part of the company’s increased international focus.
On the work front, Patel first gained widespread recognition through his starring role in Slumdog Millionaire. He is also making his directorial debut with the upcoming Netflix feature Monkey Man, which he also co-wrote and stars in.
