Actor Rahul Dev, who plays a police officer in the cop-drama series Hunter - Tootega Nahi, Todega reveals that the protagonist, Suniel Shetty, brought a lot of infectious energy to the set of the show. And it is this energy that made the show what it is.
Asked to share his experience of working with Suniel, Rahul told OTTplay, "Infectious is the word that comes to mind when I talk about working with Anna (referring to Suniel Shetty). His energy and enthusiasm for his work is very infectious. And that rubs off on to the entire team, to whoever is present on set. He really pushes everyone to a direction that adds so depth to the entire narrative."
Citing an example, the Rahul added, "The song that we have used to emphasise a certain situation in the show and to layer up the narrative was his idea. Since SaRaGaMa has a rich archive of songs, we have managed to use them in the favour of the story. Those songs have the value of nostalgia, and make bring alive the story of the show. Every song fits a specific situation and that is how we created something incredible and unique."
The story of Hunter - Tootega Nahi, Todega revolves around ACP Vikram (Suniel) and the darker side of the glitz and glamour of Mumbai.
Sharing more details about his character, Rahul said, "I play a police officer named Hooda who is from Haryana. From his body language to his accent, everything about him is quite rough and rugged. The narrative is based on the one-upmanship between Hooda and ACP Vikrant. As the story progresses, different layers of both the characters surface, and there is also an element of surprise. It really is an interesting character. The best thing about the show is that every character is equally important and the fact audience cannot miss out on any part of the series. They have to watch it attentively."
Hunter - Tootega Nahi, Todega is directed by Alok Batra and Prince Dhiman, and produced by Vikram Mehra and Vikram Anand Kumar. The series also stars Esha Deol, Barkha Singh, Karanvir Sharma, Smita Jaykar, and Pawan Chopra.
The eight-episode series is available to stream on Amazon miniTV.
