I’m so happy to be making my OTT debut with @zee5, we’ve done so much together and it feels like family. I loved the concept of this show from the start and am so proud of how it turned out… I can’t wait for you all to see it.” The show’s teaser also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and Shriya Pilgaonkar.
Jaideep also shared the teaser on his Instagram account. Describing his character, the actor wrote, “Sansani aur Sach ke iss khel main, Main kahaniyon ko chunta hun. Kyunki News Boring Hoti Hain (In the game of sensation versus truth, I choose stories because news is boring).” Shriya, who is currently basking in the success of her Guilty Minds series, said she was thrilled to be part of the project “with two of my absolute favorite actor”.
Directed by Vinay Waiku, The Broken News also stars Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana and Kiran Kumar.
According to the creators, the series revolves around two competing Mumbai-based news channels – Awaaz Bharati, an independent, ethical news channel, and Josh 24/7 News, which offers sensational and invasive journalism. What happens between the main characters in their search for news forms the core of the show.
