Nirahua will be seen playing a special task force officer – Tejaswi Pratap Singh. Speaking about the web series being based on the book, lead actor Nirahua shared, “Growing up, I often saw people reading ‘Vardiwala Gunda,’ a very popular and much-loved novel written by Ved Prakash Sharma. What I didn’t know at that time is that a web series will be made on it in the future, and I will get the opportunity to star in it. It is definitely surreal and I hope the audience enjoys watching it as much as we have enjoyed bringing the story to them.”
The web series promises to be a delightful treat for those who have wished to see the novel translated on screen and with all the right elements for it to be a be a complete entertainer.
