While there are several channels airing crime shows on television, national broadcaster, Doordarshan has conceptualised a show that shall not only show crimes that are happening in the country, but also give the viewers an insight on ways to avoid it.
Actor Om Puri has been approached to anchor the show. “The concept of the show interested me and I have given a nod to it,” says the actor. However, he hasn’t yet signed the contract. “While the concept is good, I want to be sure how the creative team plans to take the show forward,” he adds.
Since the actor has not done anything in the space earlier, he is really excited to be a part of it. “Sometimes, carelessness or negligence leads to bigger crimes. This show would help viewers in becoming attentive,” he says.
