“Katte bahut dekh liye, ab sarkari bandook ki garmee dikhayenge (We have seen many guns of criminals, now we will show the heat of the law’s guns)’ is the tag-line for the show. Based on the real-life events of super-cop Avinash Mishra, the show is helmed by director Neerraj Pathak.
Set in Uttar Pradesh, Hooda’s cop avatar will see him in action in a dramatic retelling of the life of the famed inspector dealing with criminal activities of the state. Captivated by his persona and accounts of Mishra’s daring, the director felt compelled to tell his brave story to the world. He approached the real-life dynamic cop three years ago, who agreed to bless the project.
Hailing from Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh, inspector Avinash Mishra has been a part of the Special Task Force and the Anti-Terrorism Squad. Often referred to as Guruji, he has contributed successfully to several important cases and was posted in Lucknow for quite some time. He retired later as a DSP. And now, audiences will get to see all the action behind his courageous journey through this web series.
