There is something iconic about playing a cop. The khaki Vardi, the power-packed action sequences, the police sunglasses, and the heroic act. Everything! A fiery police character is appreciated by each and every one. Well, if a strong role of a cop fascinates you, you are in sheer luck. You know why? ALTBalaji is all set to introduce its hottest face of the season, Angad Bedi in the avatar of an encounter specialist on its newest web series, Mum Bhai.
ALTBalaji confirmed the news on Instagram in one of their recent posts. They shared a picture of the lead actor, Angad Bedi in his character and captioned, “Jisse poore Bombay ka cleanup karne ki thaani thi, jis se dehshat khata tha underworld, yeh tha Bhaskar Shetty aur 1996 uska waqt tha! 83 encounters kiye usne aur ab aa raha hai woh #MumBhai ki kahani lekar on #ALTBalaji.
About Angad’s character
Set to essay an encounter specialist, Angad Bedi seems elated to be a part of ALTBalaji’s new web series. And why shouldn’t he even be? He has every reason to be thrilled (just like us!) to play such a strong role that is set amidst the 90s that revolves around the buzzing streets of Mumbai. The crime web series, Mum Bhai literally takes you back in time when extortion, drugs, murders, and kidnappings were the orders of the day.
Speaking of his role, Angad Bedi was quoted saying, “I have played an Army [officer] in Tiger Zinda Hai  and the upcoming Kargil Girl. But playing a cop is new to me.” He further added, “This is the first time I am playing the role of a cop for a project, and it’s a whole new world which I’m looking forward to dwelling into.” Well, all we can say is that we are immensely proud of you, Angad and can’t wait to see you dazzle on-screen, no?
ALTBalaji gives you a full look of his role in the latest video that they shared on their Instagram handle. They captioned, “ “Isko 90s ka Mumbai jaanta bhi tha, aur sara underworld pehchanta bhi tha! Yeh aa raha hai aap se milne, aur aapko dikhane #MumBhai ka swag, show streaming on 6th Nov, on #ALTBalaji! Trailer releasing on 19th Oct!” What’s interesting to watch in the video is how effortlessly Angad manages to pull off his character with so much ease (and pistols, of course). Well, believe us when we say, it wasn’t as easy as it looked. It took hours of practise and training sessions for him!
He confirmed to Midday saying, “I had undergone some training in rifle shooting when I filmed Tiger Zinda Hai. But, this show is set in the ’90s, and hence, the kind of guns we’ve used belong to that era. The pistols are different from those that are currently used. A lot of Bhaskar’s personality is reflected in the action sequences, which is why the use of the gun had to look flawless. I have learnt how to hold and operate it. The action directors have been taking me through each sequence, showing me precisely how to approach the target, and maintain the right posture to shoot.” Watch his behind the scenes snapshots from Mum Bhai web series.
