Fresh from the thunderous success of his debut film Uri: The Surgical Strike (2018), which is still minting money at the cash counter, actor Mohit Raina has now signed a digital series, titled Bhaukaal, which means impressive and robust.
The series, which is being produced by Applause Entertainment, is inspired by the real-life achievements of IPS officer Navniet Sekera, who is known to have brought down the organized crime syndicates in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, in the early 2000s.
Actor and producer Harman Baweja is the creator and showrunner of the series. He has joined forces with director Jatin Wagle to helm the project. Besides Mohit Raina, Bhaukaal also features Bidita Bag, Rashmi Rajput, Abhimanyu Singh, Siddhanth Kapoor, Sunny Hinduja, Pradeep Nagar and Gulki Joshi in important roles.
Talking about his role in the digital series, Mohit Raina said, “Bhaukaal brings me a chance to play a brave police officer, one who brought change and broke through the age-old criminal and local political nexus.”
The actor went on to add, “I am happy and excited to play this character, under the expertise of veterans like Sameer Nair and the very passionate Harman Baweja.”
The series has already started rolling.
