Arjun Bijlani is currently shooting for ZEE5’s upcoming series Chhabbis Gyarah which is based on Sandeep Unnithan’s book - Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11.
The eight-episode series unravels the untold stories and is a true to account narrative of the various events that turned into the prolonged terror siege of Mumbai on 26th November 2008.
Arjun essays the role of the NSG commando who saved several hostages and was a true hero who led the entire mission. He shares, “I am truly excited to make my digital debut with ZEE5’s Operation Terror - Chhabbis Gyarah. When I read the script, I was taken aback with the many incidents that took place during 26/11 and I still did not know about. The script is extremely layered and audiences are sure to be engaged from the word go. As an actor, it is important to keep reinventing yourself and my role is noteworthy and challenging.”
Produced and created by Abhimanyu Singh of Contiloe Pictures and co-created and directed by Matthew Leutwyler, the gripping narrative provides a first-hand account of the tragedy that befell Mumbai, the city of dreams. The series will shed light on hitherto unknown facts about the entire incident.
This edge of the seat thriller also features an impressive cast comprising Vivek Dahiya, Sid Makkar, Tara Alisha Berry, Khalida Jaan, Jyoti Gauba, Roshni Sahota, Suzanne Bernert, Naren Kumar and Jason Shah.
