The teaser of Amit Sadh-starrer Zidd is out. The ZEE5 series will showcase the true story of Kargil hero Major Deependra Singh Sengar.

Expressing his excitement about Zidd, Amit Sadh said in a statement, “Zidd is a defining moment in my career. The teaser is an early testimony to that, and the real deal is the premiere on January 22, 2021. It is the story of a man’s conviction and determination. It is based on Major Deependra Singh Sengar, the Kargil war hero. It is an ode to his wilful journey. I am glad it is made into a series so that viewers can soak in all highlights and turning points of his journey. I hope the audience will like the teaser and appreciate the soul and hard work that has gone into its making. I am looking forward to what the fans have to say about it.”

The official synopsis of Zidd reads, “Based on a true story, Zidd narrates the touching story of the valour and determination of a soldier whose never give up attitude helps him overcome tough challenges and turn the impossible into possible.”
