We all are aware about the fun that actors have while shooting for different projects. Incidentally, Ram Kapoor had a sort of an unexpected adventure while shooting for Human. Ram narrates the incident in his own words, “Well, we were shooting in Alibaug in a very old and beautiful villa of around 80 – 100 years old, and I went to the bathroom in the middle of shoot where the door got jammed. So I actually got stuck in the bathroom for quite a while! I think the whole crew tried their best to open the door, and they couldn’t open the door and it was just madness, and then finally, a really small crew member had to climb all the way up the outside wall and jumping through the window, which was quite an adventure and quite a memorable experience for all of us, especially for me.”

This incident is sure to stay on in the memory of the entire crew along with Ram Kapoor for a long time! A pharma giant is using India’s lax clinical trial rules to fast track the development of a new drug, despite lethal side effects. Meanwhile, 35-year-old Dr. Saira Sabharwal lands a dream job in Bhopal’s premier hospital under the mentorship of the iconic 45-year-old Dr. Gauri Nath. Saira grows under Gauri’s tutelage and as the two women start to form a deep bond over their commitment to the medical cause. However, a shocking discovery throws their life into chaos as their story becomes intertwined with that of a young migrant worker, Mangu (20 years), who is all set to wreak havoc on the medical system.
The fictional series enunciates the collateral damage due to fast tracked drug trials for financial gains in a gripping tale that involves innocent lives lost to greed. Touching compelling themes like the value of human life, medical malpractice, class divide and ramifications of a fast-paced medical science, Human brings forth the greed to make money in a compelling tale of power struggles, secretive pasts, trauma and murders.
