Actor Purab Kohli hopes his forthcoming TV show P.O.W. Bandi Yuddh Ke rescues the Indian television industry.
“If ‘P.O.W.’ does well, it will change the face of Indian television because I don’t think that a channel has ever attempted something like this,” Purab, who has earlier featured in a show like Hip Hip Hurray and has been a successful video jockey, told IANS.
Purab said, “We would have got the prime slot but because of some intense scenes and some action in it, they can’t show it in prime time slot. There is a big hope that ‘P.O.W.” will rescue the television industry,” he added.
The drama will also feature Amrita Puri, Sandhya Mridul and Satyadeep Mishra.
It’s a an Indian adaptation of the Israeli TV drama Hatufim. It will present the story of two missing-in-action soldiers who return home after 17 years.
While Purab is excited about the show, he is also enjoying being a father.
“Fatherhood is a gift that I wish upon everybody and especially when it’s a baby girl. When you have a child, you stop living for yourself. It’s the most beautiful feeling,” said the actor, who became a father in December last year with his lady love Lucy Payton.
P.O.W. Bandi Yuddh Ke, helmed by filmmaker Nikkhil Advani, will be aired on Star Plus from Monday at 10:30 p.m.
