Aamir Ali to make his digital debut with ZEE5's 'Naxalbari'

ZEE5, even during the pandemic, continues to present original content. The platform recently released films like Pareeksha, Chintu Ka Birthday, Yaara, Bamfaad, Ghoomketu, and web series like Lalbazaar, Mafia and Churails. The team has also started shooting in the lockdown by following and maintaining all the restrictions and safety guidelines that have been set. 

In a recent announcement, the team started shooting Naxalbari in Goa. The show stars Rajeev Khandelwal and Aamir Ali in pivotal roles. The show also marks Aamir's digital debut where he will be seen playing an intriguing character.

Talking about the web series and his character, Aamir said, "I wanted to play a character which is distinct and mysterious at the same time. I’m excited to be of part of Naxalbari and can't wait for my fans to witness a character that I have never played before. We have been shooting in Goa and the experience is really very different, but I must admit the sort of dedication and hard work the crew puts to work in this situation is heart-warming and commendable. Naxalbari is an interesting subject and all the actors in the show have come together to deliver something brilliant. This one is going to be a show like no other."

The eight-episode action-packed series is a fictional account of the protagonist’s fightback against a red uprising. It is a race against time for Raghav (Rajeev Khandelwal) - a cop, who is up against all odds to save the day. An action-packed series that alternates between the dense jungles of Maharashtra and metropolitan cities which increasingly become hotbeds for the Naxal ideology.

Besides them, the show stars Tina Datta (Ketki), Sreejita Dey (Prakriti), Satyadeep Mishra (Pahan), Shakti Anand (Binu Atram) in prominent roles.
