According to The Indian Express, director Neeraj Pandey recently talked about the show: “We have always envisioned Special Ops as a multi-layered franchise which would be leveraged on characters, scale and format innovation."
The filmmaker mentioned that the prospect of expanding this universe with Special Ops 1.5: The Himmat Story on Disney+ Hotstar is exciting.
Meanwhile, producer Shital Bhatia said that shooting the series during the lockdown while keeping the scale and the production aesthetics high was extremely challenging.
