Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra will be directing the Indian adaptation of acclaimed Israeli crime-thriller Hostages, which will feature Ronit Roy, Tisca Chopra, Parvin Dabas and Dalip Tahil.
Applause Entertainment, the content studio from the Aditya Birla Group, is working on the Indian adaptation of the show. The web series will be produced by Banijay Asia.
"I treat each and every film/show of mine as the first one, which helps me think of the plot in a new and fresh way. aHostages' is one such example. For me, every element and every person who is involved in the project forms an integral part, including the actors, producers, writer, cameraman and the whole team," Mishra said in a statement to IANS.
Hostages is an intense psychological crime-thriller that follows a renowned surgeon about to perform a routine operation on the President. But her family is taken hostage and she is ordered to sabotage the procedure and kill the President.
Ronit says Hostages is a show "which had me arrested in front of the screen when I watched it".
"It has been hugely appreciated all over the globe and my character in the series is very intriguing. I constantly strive to keep my audiences engaged and entertained with each of my performances. I'm delighted to work with an excellent director like Sudhir Mishra for this series," he added.
