The first glimpse of broken news is here. Zee5 has unveiled a poster for its Hindi adaptation of the UK news series. This marks the streaming platform’s first collaboration with BBC Studios India – the BBC’s production and distribution arm. A first look at the cast of The Broken News starring Sonali Bendre, Jaideep Ahlawat and Shriya Pilgaonkar. The show marked Bendre’s debut on a subscription-based streaming service, commonly known as an OTT (over-the-top) service. Bendre said she chose The Broken News as a character that resonated with her.
Bendre told Midday, “The first thing is that I love the script, the characters I’m playing (in The Broken News) and what the show is saying. It resonates! The second part is that I’m in a phase of life that is more It’s more about me, I have more time. I want to do more things and get back to work. While I’ve been working, it’s not a priority, it is now! A lot of interesting things are happening and I feel Kind of forgotten. Even I want to be a part of it.
It remains to be seen if The Broken News helps Bendre, who played roles in popular Hindi films like ’90s action actor Aag and drama Zakhm, starts her new inning on a good note.
On the other hand, Pilgaonkar and Ahlawat are no strangers to the digital space. Pilgaonkar rose to fame for playing a key role in the action film Mirzapur. Likewise, Ahlawat received critical acclaim for his work in the crime drama Paatal Lok, and went on to appear in the Zee5 series Bloody Brothers. In addition to the protagonist trio, the cast of Broken News also includes Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana and Kiran Kumar.
Not much is known about The Broken News’ story, but we can expect it to be different from the one in The Press because, unlike the original (which deals with print news), it explores the dark side of the TV medium. Also, the plot may be tweaked to appeal to Indian audiences.
A release date for Broken News has not been announced.
