Actor Barun Sobti, who plays a pivotal role along with Regina Cassandra in the web series Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke, says he always wanted to work with the National Award-winning director Srijit Mukherji. And he got to do that with this project.

The show revolves around IPS officer Kavya Iyer (Regina) and Barun plays her husband, Sameer, in the show. Sameer is someone who is constantly trying to take care of his family and child, while his wife is away for duty.

In a candid chat with OTTplay, Barun said, "It is interesting how Srijit shot the entire show, because it wasn't logistically easy shoot it due to the many outdoor shots and action sequences. Srijit is technically sound and his shooting process is very different; he keeps the editing in mind when taking a shot. So, it is quite cut-to-cut. He was level-headed and technically very good. It was exciting to execute scenes with Srijit. I enjoyed working with him."

The actor also said that he was not only excited to be part of the show because of the story, but also the cast and crew. "I was excited, because working with new actors is always a good idea. I get to meet so many people and explore something unique," said Barun.

Srijit has earlier worked with much-celebrated names in the business, be it iconic Bengali actor Prosenjit Chatterjee, or Bollywood stars like Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu and Pankaj Tripathi, among many others. He has won four National Awards so far.

Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke, which is directed by Srijit Mukherjee, also stars Mita Vashist, Sumeet Vyas, Gayathri Shanker, Deepika Amin and Sandeep Dhabale, among others. It will be available to stream on OTTplay and ZEE5 from January 26.
