The show focuses on a character named Lin, a convict who flees from an Australian prison and disappears into the city of Bombay. In India, Lin's journey takes him through a hidden society of soldiers, gangsters, and criminals.

Charlie Hunnam, known for "Sons of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim," is set to star in "Shantaram" as the main character.

"Shantaram" follows a fugitive named Lin Ford (Hunnam) looking to get lost in vibrant and chaotic 1980s Bombay. Alone in an unfamiliar city, Lin struggles to avoid the trouble he's running from in this new place. After falling for an enigmatic and intriguing woman named Karla, Lin must choose between freedom or love and the complications that come with it.

The first three episodes will come out on October 14, with a new episode to follow every Friday through December 16. There are 12 episodes in total.

Seems like the type of shows I like. I hope Apple allows the creators freedom to portray something crude, memorable, and interesting.

I believe Severance is the best show on TV Plus right now, I truly hope they amp it up with a good catalogue, I am not a hater as others have called me before, but I just have been let down by most of the content on the platform.

Loved this guy in "Sons of Anarchy" – if he plays even as half of melodramatic, brooding role, I'm in!

He was great in SOA and PR. Seems like he’s gotten lackluster roles since. Or next to no roles. Would love to see him more successful.

I wasn't aware of this until recently, I watched a true crime show where a rich kid from Australia murd*r*d somebody and he simply fled to India, changed his hair color, name and even lived a life of luxury there.
I have to ask, but… murd*r*d ? ?

Murdered? I didn't know it is a swear word these days.

Is this a new thing, censoring random words?

So hard to keep up with trends these days.

Many criminals flee to India, Thailand, Indonesia.

They pay bribe there to change names, police protection and all that.
