According to the streamer, "Mumbai Diaries 26/11" depicts the untold story of doctors, nurses, paramedics, and hospital staff who worked tirelessly to save lives during the terror attacks that ravaged the city.

"The series is an account of events that unfold in the Emergency Room of a government hospital, while exploring the challenges faced by the medical staff at the hospital as well as other first responders across the city of Mumbai in dealing with a crisis of immense magnitude," the streamer said in a statement.
Produced by Monisha Advani and Madhu Bhojwani of Emmay Entertainment, the show is directed by Nikkhil Advani along with Nikhil Gonsalves.
