"After Inside Edge, I was keen to do a show only if it ups the ante in terms of uniqueness of storyline. I heard the concept of this show, it just blew my mind! Powerful and exceptional roles like these are what actor dreams are made of,” Angad said. “The story at its core is so powerful, and who wouldn’t take up the opportunity to play Karl Khandalawala, the experienced top running criminal lawyer. It’s an interesting role and I have already started preparing for it. I am so glad to have got this opportunity to work with Shashant Shah who is going to direct this show,” he added.

Filmmaker Tinu Suresh Desai made 'Rustom' in 2016 which was also based on the same case. In the film, Akshay Kumar's role was inspired by KM Nanavati's character and he was even bestowed with the National Award that year. 

Angad Bedi was last seen in the film 'Soorma', which was the story of the international hockey player Sandeep Singh. The actor got married in May to Neha Dhupia in a private ceremony and are now expecting their first baby.
