Actor Shoaib Ahmed who has featured in web series 13 Mussoorie and Collateral Damage will now play the role of Ajmal Kasab in Contiloe’s upcoming web-series, Black Tornado 26/11 which will stream on ZEE5.
Directed by Mathew Leutwyler, the story has been adapted from Sandeep Unnithan’s book Black Tornado.
For Shoaib, playing Kasab is a big challenge.
When contacted, Shoaib told IWMBuzz.com, “It is tough to get into the role of Ajmal Kasab. To do proper justice to the role, I am coping up and understanding his ideologies and philosophy. It is a complete dichotomy of mindset. I am extremely happy working with this crew as it has thorough professionals. All are working towards one goal, that is to come out with the best product.”
The series will see Saqib Saleem playing Sandeep Unnikrishnan while Arjan Bawa will play a cop.
Here’s wishing Shoaib all the very best!!
