Actor Jatin Sarna plays a criminal in the soon-to-be-released web series Khakee: The Bihar Chapter. The thrilling series is based on a real incident and is set in Bihar at a time when crime rates in the state were making headlines.
The story revolves around a cat-and-mouse game between police officer Amit Lodha (played by Karan Tacker) and a deadly criminal and his gang, and how the police track them down and eradicate crime from society.
Jatin told OTTplay, "As an actor, I want to appear in a different avatar in every project that I do. But that is not easy to get, and waiting for such offers to come by certainly is not easy. When I say I want to do something different, I don't only mean in terms of my appearance and the look of the character, but also the emotional graph of the character."
Explaining how the character he plays in the cop-drama series is different from everything he has done so far, the actor shared, "Even though I play a criminal, he isn't the kind of gangsters that I have played earlier. He is an introvert. He chose a life of crime, but doesn't want his family to tread on the same path. He is a criminal, who is also a family man."
Jatin's last outing was the feature film 83, in which he played iconic cricketer Jashpal Sharma. Prior to that, the actor earned a lot of praise for his performance in the web series Sacred Games, followed by Sonchiriya and Chhalaang.
"One reasons I took up Khakee... was that I saw it as an opportunity to do something almost unimaginable — that of playing a criminal after an iconic cricketer," added Jatin.
Khakee: The Bihar Chapter is produced by Neeraj Pandey and directed by Bhauv Dhulia. It also stars Karan Tacker, Avinash Tiwary, Abhimanyu Singh, Anup Soni, Vinay Pathak, Ashutosh Rana, Nikita Dutta and Shraddha Das. It will release on November 25 on Netflix.
