Zee5 had, earlier this year, announced a new intense action-thriller NaxalBari starring Rajeev Khandelwal, Tina Dutta, Aamir Ali, Shreejita Dey and Satyadeep Mishra to release on its streaming platform for later this year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, shooting for the web series had halted, but Zee5 has now announced on Twitter that shooting has begun for NaxalBari. The makers are making all appropriate safety measures and precautions as the location are set in dangerous jungles of interior Maharashtra and on top of which the health and safety measures also have been taken care of due to COVID-19.

A tweet said, “A story that needs to be told knows no hurdles. Shooting begins for #NaxalBari under tough circumstances. Thank you @Gseamsak @arjunbaran @RK1610IsMe @TinaaDattaa @ofc_shreejita @narayanishastri @ali_aamir @satyadeepmisra, your guys are the real heroes! #ThokKeBadla”.

The eight-part web-series will follow Raghav, a cop, who is up against all odds to save his city. The show will alternate between the metropolitan cities and rural jungles of Maharashtra as they increasingly become populated with the Naxal beliefs. It is a fast-paced thriller of one man’s fight against the Naxal uprising.
