Jyotirmoy Dey was shot dead by two motorcycle-borne assailants in Powai area of Mumbai. After the shoot-out, underworld don Chhota Rajan took the responsibility for the killing as he was annoyed that Dey was reporting against him. According to the CBI chargesheet, Jigna had complained against Dey to Chhota Rajan out of professional rivalry with Dey.

Matchbox Shots has taken the onus of running the production of the Karishma Tanna starrer, which is inspired by the book ‘Behind The Bars In Byculla: My Days in Prison’ written by Jigna Vora, and will stream on Netflix.

Speaking about the series and associating with Netflix, Hansal Mehta said, “Reading Jigna Vora’s book – ‘Behind The Bars in Byculla: My Days in Prison’ piqued my interest and compelled me to bring this story alive on screen. We’ve already begun filming and I’m excited about this story being my first collaboration with Netflix.”

He added, “Great stories can only benefit from a service that can make it reach a wider set of audience, ‘Scoop’ is that kind of a story and with Netflix, we will be able to take it to audiences across the globe. With my co-creator Mrunmayee Lagoo and producers Matchbox Shots, I am seeking to delve deep into a tale of our mediatised times and the human cost of stories that we consume on a daily basis.”
