This web series marks both Sonali Bendre’s return to cinema and her digital debut. When asked about the series, the actress said, “I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to OTT platforms than with ‘The Broken News’ on ZEE5. I connected with the concept as soon as I heard it because it is so relevant to the times we live in. The whole team and my amazing co-stars Jaideep and Shriya made my return to the game an amazing experience. I’m so excited to share what we’ve created.
Speaking about his role, Jaideep Ahlawat said, “I love exploring complicated and nuanced characters and Dipankar Sanyal is one of those dream characters. We’re worlds apart and maybe that’s why it was so fun to walk in his place.
He added: “Also, it was a pleasure to collaborate with ZEE5 again and with BBC Studios for the first time. I am delighted with the premiere of the show and I am sure it will make a strong impression on the audience.
Director Vinay Waikul also shared more details about the film during an interaction. He said: “We are all exposed to daily news, but few of us know what is going on behind the show. It’s a lot of politics, drama, lies, betrayals, sacrifices and compromises. “The Broken News” is a story worth telling and I’m grateful to have had the support of my producers, cast and crew to bring my vision to life. ‘The Broken News’ is unlike any other on Indian television and I hope it will reach a wide audience”.
