Kunal Khemu, best remembered for playing Laxman in filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s superhit comedy film franchise Golmaal, is set to make his digital debut with an upcoming crime thriller web-show, titled Abhay.

To be produced by producer B.P. Singh, who is known for his cult television crime series CID, Abhay is being touted as the first procedural format crime thriller, a genre which has not been explored in the OTT space yet.

Talking about Khemu’s role in the series, the actor will be seen as SP Abhay Pratap Singh who solves bone-chilling murder cases while dealing with his own personal demons. Since the actor has not played a cop before, it will be interesting to see him in such a role.

“It’s exciting to explore new formats and push your boundaries as an actor, and Abhay had it all. I am an avid consumer of long format web series like everyone else, and hence I know that a series such as Abhay has all the ingredients that the OTT viewer is looking for. Very excited to partner with ZEE5, given the content that they have produced and are planning to do in the coming months, and I look forward to reaching out to the audience with this action-packed concept,” Kunal Khemu said in a statement.

Abhay premieres on 7th February only on ZEE5. It is an eight-episode crime thriller, with two episodes unfolding each month.
