Showrunner and director Ashim Ahluwalia said in a statement, “It was quite a task to adapt a show that has had enormous love globally, particularly because I wanted to rework its cinematic language and set it in New Delhi. I was keen to make something real and intense, something that charts the heightened emotions of teenage life. I also wanted to explore class, something we engage with daily but rarely see authentically depicted on screen.”
Produced by Bodhitree Multimedia Limited in association with Future East, the Indian remake has been written by Rajesh Devraj, Kersi Khambatta, Raghav Kakkar, Kashyap Kapoor and Bhaskar Hazarika. The sixth season of Elite was released in November 2022 and Netflix has renewed the Spanish series for a seventh season as well.
