And the show's name is A Mouthful Of Sky. It aired in 1995 on DD National. It was the first serial to be ever made in English which was produced in India. The script was made by Ashok Banker and starred actors like Rahul Bose, Milind Soman, Samir Soni, Ayesha Sharker, Simone Singh, R Madhavan, Kushal Punjabi, Parvin Dabbas, Krutika Desai Khan and others.
The plot dealt about five MBAs who reunite 13 years after graduation to confront a macabre secret from the past which a group of ruthless enemies use to try to destroy them. It was a crime-thriller structured with multiple subplots and also dealt with urban Indians from various communities and their struggle to mix the inherent contradictions of their Indianness with their westernized outlook and language.
Directed by Anant Balani, Mahesh Bhatt and Ajay Goel, the show went on to set some extreme standards for the future of TV.
