Filmmaker Vishesh Bhatt, son of producer Mukesh, will be producing a web-series based on late RK Laxman's book Servants Of India.
The book is a combination of work of fiction and a few incidents that Laxman experienced himself.
"RK Laxman had interesting stories to tell and his vulnerable characters enhanced his vision. I am so glad that his family believed in me and gave me the opportunity to make this series," Bhatt said in a statement.
"I am really looking forward to working on this project and bringing his characters to life with contemporary twists," he added.
RK IPR Management, a company founded by RK Laxman, has expressed confidence in Bhatt and his plan to make the series.
In the series, every character will have a certain idiosyncrasy. Bhatt wants to adapt the characters with a new age and quirky treatment.
