Rohit Roy plays a cop in an upcoming episode of Encounter which was recently flagged off on Sony. He will be seen on the small screen after a long time. The actor plays a fearless police officer named Milind Mandlik who is straightforward and talks tough with corrupt people.
On the show, Roy will be seen sharing screen space with Murli Sharma after 15 years and host Manoj Bajpayee after 20 years. “I have been playing various action roles in films and have been a bad boy in most of them but in Encounter, I got to do action along with a chance to play the good guy,” said Roy who is playing a cop for the first time in his career.
Meanwhile, Sharma will be seen in the role of gangster Katta Sridhar in the thriller episode which is set in the 1980s. His look, he says, also compliments the period. “The character is that of a Hyderabadi so it was difficult to get the dialect right.
The gang operated with a katta, hand-made guns, hence his name. I had a great time doing it. Television is consuming and exhausting but I enjoyed every minute and I am sure audiences will love the show too,’’ says the actor who shuttles between films and television.
