ZEE5’s Upcoming Web Series, Black Tornado, to Focus on 26/11 Terrorist Attack.
ZEE5 is gearing up to release a new web series that will be based on the 26/11 terrorist attack on Mumbai that occurred in 2008. The web series, titled ‘Black Tornado’, is being produced by Contiloe Pictures for ZEE5 and has been adapted from Sandeep Unnithan’s bestselling book, Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11.
The name ‘Black Tornado’ comes from the National Security Guard’s code name for the operation launched to counter the terrorists and stop the 26/11 attack.
Black Tornado will be an intense drama that will capture various aspects of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai that plunged the city into chaos for three long days, and how, in the face of terror, people like ordinary citizens, police officers, as well as well-trained commandos responded to the dreadful situation.
The series will have an ensemble cast, featuring Sid Makkar, Tara Alisha Berry, Khalida Jaan, Vivek Dahiya, Sunny Sachdeva, Jyoti Gauba, and Roshni Sahota in important roles. Shoaib Ahmed will be playing the role of Ajmal Kasab, while Akash Makhija and Sonu Randeep Choudhury will play the terrorists Soheb and Ismail respectively. Karan Singh Chhabra will also be playing the role of a terrorist.
Moreover, Arjun Bajwa will play a police officer, Jairoop Jeevan will play a brigadier, and Saqib Saleem will be seen in the role of late Indian Army officer, Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who was martyred in a firefight during the attack.
It’s going to be interesting to watch how ZEE5’s Black Tornado will turn out on the screens. Keep watching this space for further updates.
