Ahead of its launch on April 7, Amazon Prime Video has released a trailer for the show, a love letter to the golden age of Bollywood, a life story of a rising star, studio heads, a naïve girl, and more as they chase dreams and struggle to make it in the movie business. Although the premise sounds a bit like Damien Chazelle babylonThe tone of the Jubilee trailer is nowhere near boisterous or loud – or drug-fuelled, for that matter.

Episodes 1-5 of Jubilee will be out on April 7, while the remaining 6-10 will release next week on April 14.

The stone-faced Madan/Binod warns him, “If you are so fond of wasting money, go gamble at the casino.” Then there is Nilofer (Vamika Gabbi), a singer-dancer who earns her living by performing in front of live audiences, with the belief that one has to dedicate one’s body or one’s soul to make it in the industry.
