New Delhi: Yash Raj Films, India’s biggest production house, is venturing into the booming digital content (over-the-top or OTT) landscape of India. YRF’s streaming content production business will be called YRF Entertainment and it will churn out five marquee projects to begin with in its first year.

Babil Khan, the son of late Bollywood star Irrfan Khan, has shared the first poster of his debut project titled ‘The Railway Men’. This project is said to be a one-season limited series. Besides the four leading men, the series will also feature several other powerful performers who will be announced in due course of time.

The makers of The Railway Men announced the project today, December 2. The tragedy took place in Bhopal, today, 37 years ago, in 1984. Announcing the project, the makers wrote, “Courage. Grit. Resilience. Saluting #TheRailwayMen – the unsung heroes of 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy through @yrfentertainment’s 1st OTT project.

Akshaye Widhani, Senior Vice President of Yash Raj Films told in a press release, “The Bhopal Gas Tragedy is the world’s worst industrial disaster that has impacted scores of people since the tragedy struck the city 37 years ago. At YRF, we are constantly trying to develop the best compelling stories for audience and this is our tribute to the unsung heroes of the tragedy who, despite saving thousands of lives on that fateful day, are still unknown to people across the world.”

We are not going to leave any stone unturned to ensure that this story reaches out to audiences, across the world, in the best possible way so that they can understand the depth of devastation that this tragedy has caused in India”, told IANS.

In the late hours of December 2, 1984, methyl isocyanate gas leaked from a pesticide factory owned by American Union Carbide Corporation. It has been reported that more than half a million people were poisoned that night and the official death toll exceeded 5,000.

Thousands of survivors have said they, their children and grandchildren are struggling with chronic health problems like cancer, blindness, respiratory, immune and neurological problems as a result of the leak.
