THE comical new series Mumbai Calling on HBO, in English is to be a laughter riot, funny and entertaining and based on the business of outsourcing, which will have you glued to your seats, with a twist in each episode and humorous sequences leaving you with immense anticipation and a yearning to know more! The story is set in the Tecknobable Call Centre in downtown Mumbai where England has outsourced its mundane day to day problems to a team of tech-savvy Universi ty graduates. The hilarious adventures of the team are recounted with Kenny Gupta (Sanjeev Bhaskar), a London born accountant who has been sent to run the centre. His journey in Mumbai is redolent with his encounters with Dev Rajaha (Nitin Ganatra), his erstwhile general manager and purveyor of clandestine goods and services who has been running the operation, and with Terri Johnson (Daisy Beaumont), a dynamic, feisty woman who comes from the UK headquarters to streamline the Indian operations.
