‘Barrister Roy’, a new thriller, will begin telecast on DD1 from September 10, 2006. The serial will be aired in the 10-11 pm slot. Bhagwant Deshpande, who had directed ‘Barrister Vinod’ on DD1 several years back, will be directing the serial. It is being produced by Adhyan Films.
Veteran TV actor Kanwaljeet will be essaying the title role of Barrister Roy. The thriller will comprise a single story spread over two episodes. It eulogises the philosophy that an innocent person should never be convicted due to the apathy of the police or public prosecutors.
Elaborating on the serial, Shruti Agarwal, Director, Adhyan Films, said, “In contemporary times, innocent people are victimised and the real culprits go scot-free. We are confident that millions of Doordarshan audiences will take an instant liking to ‘Barrister Roy’. We have put together a competent crew to ensure high production values and left no stone unturned in terms of good locations and studios. We have got the go-ahead for 26 episodes and are confident of getting good ratings.”
“The treatment is quite contemporary. The stories have been chosen with a lot of care. The narrative is fast-paced and engages the audience’s attention. We are using the latest technology and equipment in order to enhance the offering,” added Deshpande, the serial’s director.
