I have always been quite impressed with Arjun Rampal‘s craft. And not just his performances but also the projects he chooses are quite impactful. Now with OTT space becoming the new big thing in the entertainment arena, Arjun has been acing that space too. After his stint as Captain Karan Sachdeva in The Final Call, Arjun had a film called Nail Polish released on the OTT space last year. However, 2022 looks very different for the actor, with lots of films and an interesting web show on his plate. Yes, Arjun’s latest project is the web-show London Files where we see him play a detective.
The show’s trailer has released yesterday, and seeing the few glimpses from the story only tells me that Arjun’s character detective Om Singh is only going to leave me hooked on this show.
Watch the trailer here:
Starring Purab Kohli and Arjun in pivotal roles, London Files is an investigative thriller following the journey of a homicide detective, Om Singh, who takes on the case of media mogul Amar Roy’s (played by Purab) missing daughter. As the investigations begin, a darker mystery comes to light, threatening to expose some buried secrets from Om’s repressed past. Well, to me, the show looks like something that will keep me at the edge of my seat throughout.
Talking about the show, Arjun Rampal says,
London Files is unlike any project I have done, in fact I do believe there isn’t any project like this that I have ever seen both on the domestic or international platforms. It explores many issues that we face today on a day-to-day level as Om (my character) investigates a high-profile case. The character of Detective Om is unpredictable, flawed and complexed, and I must admit, portraying the character had an impact on me personally. It’s the screenplay, edit, photography, performances, and narrative that I am sure is going to keep the audiences captivated. It will raise questions and will show you the way. I am super proud of what the whole team has achieved, it’s great to have Voot Select on-board as they see a great future in the show, and Jar pictures for backing it. Now I wait in anticipation for the most important part, the audience reactions.
London Files also stars Gopal Datt, Sapna Pabbi, Medha Rana, Sagar Arya, and Eva Jane Willis in key roles. Directed by Sachin Pathak and produced by Jar Pictures, the six-episode series is all set to premiere on 21st April only on Voot Select.
On the work front, Arjun has an amazing line-up. There is Dhaakad, The Battle Of Bhima Koregaon, Nastik, and a south film called Hari Hara Veera Mallu.
