The web series also stasr Barun Sobti and Sumeet Vyas.
Actress Regina Cassandra is gearing up to play the role of an IPS officer in the upcoming web series Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke. In a candid chat with OTTplay, Regina opened up about how she prepared for the action packed role.
The story of the series revolves around Kavya Iyer, a dedicated police officer on a mission to protect the nation. Kavya does not shy away from putting her and the lives of the police force at risk to track down terrorists who are attacking the system and taking the lives of thousands of innocents.
Asked about her process of understanding a character like Kavya, Regina said, "The preparation for the role was very good for me. This was the first time I played the character of an IPS officer, and it is loosely based on the life of a few real-life officers so we were keeping it real. I wanted to understand where the story is coming from so I wanted to read the material first."
Since there are multiple action set pieces in the series, the actress also had to go through a fair amount of training to achieve perfection.
She said, "I am an active person in general in my daily life but that does not mean I will get action easily, one has to learn it. In the past, I have done a couple of action films and my body finds ease with action. So, there wasn't too much I had to do. I got it. Having said that I want to know how those intense action scenes have come out in the final cut, I am yet to watch them."
Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke is directed by National Award-winning film director Srijit Mukherjee. The series also stars Barun Sobti, Sumeet Vyas, Gayathri Shanker, Deepika Amin, Mita Bashist and Sandeep Dhabale, among others. It will be available to stream on ZEE5 and OTTplay on January 26.
