ZEE5, which is churning out interesting content, is all set to launch another high-impact web series.

Now, IWMBuzz.com has exclusively learnt about the platform weaving a story which is apparently based on India’s star sportsman Syed Modi’s murder case.

For the uninitiated, Syed was an eight-time National Badminton Champion, winner of the Men’s Singles title at the 1982 Commonwealth Games and three other international titles — the Austrian International and the USSR International. However, his life was abruptly cut short by a brutal murder. On the evening of July 28, 1988, when Syed Modi came out of the KD Babu Stadium after finishing his routine badminton practice and was about to start his scooter, five bullets were fired at him. All four fled the spot. On the CBI’s investigation, these four reported assailants — Amar Bahadur Singh, Bhagwati Singh, Balai Singh and Jitendra Singh — were found to be working for one Akhilesh Singh. According to the CBI, these four were hired to get the hit job done.

Now coming to the cast of the series, we have learnt Arunoday Singh (Apharan), Tridha Choudhury (Dahleez) and Shiv Pandit (Selection Day) have roped in for the project.

Earlier actor and director Dev Anand made a thriller movie based on the murder of Modi. Sau Crore was released in 1991 with the role of Modi being played by Raman Kapoor.
