Starring Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Darshan Kumar and Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles, the opening season of the family action-thriller was applauded by critics and netizens for its engaging narration and terrific performances. The plot of the web series revolves around a middle-class man (Manoj) who secretly works as an intelligence officer for the T.A.S.C, a fictitious branch of the National Investigation Agency.
Speaking about her part in the project, Samantha said “With the digital space booming, I knew I had to be a part of this revolution. What better way to make my digital debut, than with one of India’s most loved series. I have loved Raj & DK’s work and given the global reach and standing of Amazon Prime Video, I couldn’t have asked for better partners.”
