Mumbai, Nov 17 (IANS) Actor Aamir Ali, who is set to feature in Naxalbari, says the upcoming web-series was offered to him during the Covid lockdown. He added what attracted him to his character was the intensity and depth, with a bit of suspense.

“Naxalbari came to me during the Covid times. Mentally, I was empty and I think we all were in that phase. Nobody was working, meeting, shooting. Then the script came to me, and they were shooting in Goa. I was the only actor who drove to Goa from Bombay, rest everyone was already in Goa,” Aamir said.

He added: “What attracted me the most about my character is the intensity and depth, with a bit of suspense. There is a layer to it and I couldn’t say no. Naxalbari being my digital debut, I had to be comprehensive about choosing the right one. Also, a trip outside Mumbai during Covid times fascinated me.”

Directed by Partho Mitra, the series also features Tina Datta, Sreejita Dey, Satyadeep Mishra, Shakti Anand and Rajeev Khandelwal.
