The upcoming original series from streaming platform ZEE5, Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke, will star Regina Cassandra. Director Srijit Mukherji's suspenseful drama centres on Cassandra's character Kavya, a female IPS officer. The 32-year-old actor, who has appeared in movies like Mughizh, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, and Siva Manasulo Sruthi, claimed that portraying a cop in the series was a bizarre experience for her.
Regina Cassandra said in a statement, “This is up there with the most empowering characters I have essayed so far. Officers wear multiple hats and I believe that Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke truly captures that. I feel blessed to see myself in a Khaki uniform.”
Jaanbaaz Hindutan Ke, which was filmed in Meghalaya and is based on real-life events, emphasises the personal sacrifices and commitment made by uniformed officials. Announcing the show on their social media account, ZEE5 shared a video and wrote, "Kuch heroes job description nahi, desh prem ke khaatir kaam karte hai!
#JaanbaazHindustanKe coming soon only on #ZEE5"
ZEE5 India's Chief Business Officer, Manish Kalra, stated that they value telling stories that are authentic, current, and relatable to Indians. Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke, he continued, is a compelling story about Indian IPS officers who selflessly serve the country and risk their lives in the process. “As a consumer-first brand, we are continuously working towards putting forth a diversified content slate that transcends cultures, geographies, languages, and this is just another step in that direction,” Kalra said.
The show also features Barun Sobti, Mita Vashisht, and Sumit Vyas and will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
