Unlike other iconic detective characters, he is not bound by geographical, celestial or reality constraints, rather he sees beyond what others even fail to notice.

We are confident of meeting the expectations of audience and fans with the efforts that we have put in,” said actor-director Sudhanshu Rai.

Almost all the characters we see are classical, made to fit into the contemporary, but it is for the first time that the audience would get acquainted with a detective that is modern and a kind of content that is extremely intriguing and entertaining at the same time.”
Both Sudhanshu and Puneet have penned the story while Anant Rai is the Co-Director and Creative Producer of the series.
