Actor Manoj Bajpai, who is returning to television with crime-based show ‘Encounter’, says criminals enter the world of crime by chance and later get addicted to it.
Manoj Bajpai will be seen playing the host of the show, narrating each story from a neutral viewpoint and also leaving the audience with some insights pertaining to the cases.
With several crime-based shows being aired on TV, Manoj Bajpai, through his show ‘Encounter’, is trying to convey that ‘Crime does not pay, and when it does, it is often via death.’

“The basis of a good society is in punishing crime as it is not good. The police were not wrong when they killed these criminals. History teaches us that the life of crime leads to lives lived under the shadow of death. Criminals are always scared. Their actions are mostly mechanisms of defence,” Manoj Bajpai said.
“Many criminals come into the world of crime by chance and later get addicted to it. They leave behind their families who are miserable, despite having once enjoyed money and clout,” he said.
The show will tell the story of some of the most famous encounters that have taken place in Mumbai in years gone by, between the police and gangsters. “We will tell story of a gangster from his early, young days to the point that leads to infamous encounter. Though there will be comparisons with other crime-based shows, we will not try to be different but just truthful and interesting,” Bajpai said.
The makers are trying to give the show a new dimension and present it in an interesting manner. “Viewers will see me getting into the depth of the story to tell it from both points of view, the police as well as the gangster” he said.
Encounter’ goes on air from April 11 on Sony Entertainment Television.
