With unprecedented access to the Bengaluru City Police, Crime Stories: India Detectives follows major criminal investigations from the moment the crime is reported through to the capture of the suspects. From murder to kidnap to extortion, each film tracks a shocking and compelling case in the heart of India's Silicon Valley. Filmed with senior officers at home and at work, this is a unique window into the lives of Bengaluru's police officers as they attempt to detect the most complex and serious crimes in the city.

Claire Cahill and Tarun Saldanh served as producers, while Jack Warrender and N. Amit directed Crime Stories: India Detectives.

House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths explores the intricate, complex and sometimes hidden workings of a traditional Indian family. The three-part docu-series takes an exploratory look at a case that shook up the whole nation: the infamous Burari case, where 11 members of a ‘happy' family, spanning three generations, were found dead inside their house in Delhi.

Yadav is the showrunner, director, and producer on House of Secrets, with Anubhav Chopra as director, and Aseem Bajaj and Yogendra Mogre as producers. House of Secrets is a production of Yamini Pictures.

Osho's controversial ex-secretary, Ma Anand Sheela returns to India after 34 years of exile. Sheela, having re-shot to fame since the mega reception to the Netflix documentary Wild Wild Country, is now parcelling her life to the world. Searching for Sheela is an intimate look into her journey across India, observing the rebranding of her as a pop culture icon, with audiences unable to decide if they deem her a “criminal” or remain in awe of her sassy secretary days.

Shakun Batra is an executive producer on Searching for Sheela. Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Somen Mishra serve as producers. Searching for Sheela is a production of Dharmatic Entertainment and Jouska Films.
