Commenting on the same Gaurav Seth, Senior VP and Marketing Head, Sony Entertainment Television said, "SET's crime shows have always been well received by audiences and hence we have decided to triple the dose of entertainment, with CID, Crime Patrol and Adaalat, which will now come thrice a week. Our latest offering Encounter' is attuned to deliver a unique and novel television viewing experience which will not only appeal to the existing viewers, but bring in new viewers as well. The stories are brilliantly written and are brought to life with extremely well-etched characters. It will be presented by one of the most gifted actors of today, Manoj Bajpai; whose unique touch of narration will ensure that viewers are engaged and on the edge of their seats. We are confident it will appeal to all our audiences with its unique mix of crime, drama and action."

will see me getting into the depth of the story to present it from both points
of view - the police as well as the gangster. Every week, we will tell the
story of a gangster - from his early days to the point that leads to the
infamous Encounter. The stories will be narrated in an interesting and gripping
manner which will hook audiences of all ages."
