Saiyami Kher underwent intensive mixed martial arts training for her upcoming role in the third season of 'Special Ops', where she will be seen as an undercover agent. The demands of her role prompted Saiyami to fully immerse herself in a rigorous training regimen, which includes a comprehensive mix of disciplines, ranging from kickboxing to hand-to-hand combat.

Saiyami said: “I always love shooting for an action project. I have gone through MMA training for my film with Nagarjuna sir I did a 2 years ago. It’s always special coming back to Special Ops. It’s a show that received a lot of love when the first season came out.” She promises it will get bigger and better this time around. The actress concluded: “We have a great set of action directors on board. I really hope this gets me a full-fledged action role soon. 


What do we know about Special Ops?

Neeraj Pandey announced that he is creating Special Ops Universe, which will be a multi-series. Actor Kay Kay Menon played the role of agent Himmat Singh in Special Ops 1.5. "'Special Ops' was conceptualised as a universe which will go beyond the regular narratives of linear seasons and conventional storytelling, and the ensemble of cast and characters does lend itself extremely well. The response by the audiences demanded that we embark on the journey," said Pandey. Special Ops Universe is created and conceptualised by Pandey and Friday Storytellers.


"We are starting off with a unique 'Special Ops 1.5', which is neither a prequel nor a sequel and with this the audience will be witnessing the backstory of the main protagonist Himmat Singh. The series will start with Himmat Singh being assigned to another case, but the deflection point is the same parliament attack that started the series of events. It will be narrated across 3 episodes approximately an hour long each," he added.

"Special Ops season 1.5: The Himmat Story" goes back in time to 2001 and explores the formative years of Himmat Singh as an agent and how he uses his wits and intelligence for a different operation.


Kay Kay shared: "If you thought that you had seen the best of Himmat Singh, you need to wait for 'Special Ops 1.5' - it is a terrific redemption story! While it's not a prequel to 'Special Ops' (2020 digital show), there is some interesting history about the character that will unfold. As an actor, I strive to do different things and being part of a new universe is very exciting."
