The young lass who was last seen in Eros Now’s Operation Cobra as the negative lead, will be seen in ZEE’s sci-fi web series Skyfire.
As reported earlier in media, ZEE5, along with Shabina Khan (producer of Rowdy Rathore and Gabbar Is Back), have bought the rights to Aroon Raman’s book Skyfire, which is also the title of the show. There has never been a series in this space. Soumik Sen will be directing it. It will be shot at Delhi, Dehradun, Kerala and Bhutan.
Prateik Babbar and Sonal Chauhan will be the leads. They will be joined by Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta and Jatin Goswami. Sonal plays a historian, Meenakshi Pirzada, while Prateik plays Chandrasekhar, a journalist.
