Talking about the plotline of Hundred, the series features Rinku Rajput as Netra Patil, a girl with dreams of visiting Switzerland. However, her life comes crashing down around her when she finds out that she is suffering from a life-threatening disease and has only 100 days to live.
Netra is soon hired as an undercover agent by ACP Saumya Sharma, played by Lara Dutta. Though Saumya desires to be like James Bond, she is treated like an “item girl” in the male-dominated police force.
Talking about Hundred, Lara said in a statement, “One of the many reasons I chose to do the show is because I have never played a cop on screen and my character is trying hard to survive in a man’s world. She has very interesting dynamics with the people in her life and the more complex a situation, the more she thrives. She is nothing like me in real life.”
Rinku said in her statement, “Hundred is my first-ever digital show and it has been a great experience working. This medium is on boom right now and is one of the major sources of entertainment for most of us in these trying times.”
Hundred is an eight episodes long series directed by Ruchi Narain, Ashutosh Shah and Taher Shabbir.
