Commenting on the new season of the show, Ajit Thakur – EVP and Business Head for Channel V said, “The show is about the youth, their tryst with crime and the circumstances which led to the incident, rather than sensationalizing the crime or the criminal himself. Over the years, the show has gained popularity with its exceptional content and execution and we are upping the ante this time around, hoping to really get the message across.”. The host, Abhay Deol added that, “I’ve been a huge fan of the show and am excited to be a part of the greater message. Gumrah focuses on the thought that nobody is born a criminal but instead circumstances and certain unforeseen incidents take you down a bad path. The idea is to not only educate parents, families but also the youth.
