Jaideep Ahlawat on his character in The Broken News 2

Earlier, in an interview with Hindu, Jaideep Ahlawat revealed why his character, Dipankar Sanyal, switches to sensationalism. 

"A village where people were socio-politically dumb and deaf—when he (Dipankar) became their voice through honest journalism, he didn’t get his due. So when he got the opportunity to play the game, he switched to sensationalism. We have seen such examples around us," he said.
