‘Bambai Meri Jaan’ team launch new crime series with London premiere

‘Bambai Meri Jaan’ (Bombay My Beloved) is streaming now on Prime Video after a gala premiere in London this week.

The filmmaker Farhan Akhtar led team behind the Amazon Original 10-part series, which drops on September 14 across 240 countries and territories in multiple Indian and over 30 International languages, went about painting the town red to promote the new crime thriller. Ritesh Sidhwani, Shujaat Saudagar, Rensil D'silva, Kassim Jagmagia, Kritika Kamra, Avinash Tiwary and Aparna Purohit were among the team members to make a London splash including a premiere event at Leicester Square.

The fictional series, based on journalist-author Hussain Zaidi’s work, is a gripping saga about a father and son who are two sides of the same coin. The series explores the universal battle of good versus evil, set in the post-independence era. It chronicles the life and rise of a young man, Dara Kadri (Tiwary), torn between his father’s law enforcement legacy (actor Kay Kay Menon) and his own journey into the heart of organised crime of the Bombay mafia of the time.

Kay Kay Menon said: “My character Ismail Kadri is multi-layered and complex. He is an honest cop and a doting father who isn’t perfect.

“On the one hand, he is deeply committed to cleaning the city of Bambai of all crime, on the other, to save his family, he is forced to become a pawn to the city’s crime syndicate. Even as Ismail fights against all odds not to give in to the evil surrounding him, he sees his own flesh and blood rising as the city’s new gang lord.”

Avinash Tiwary added: “When I first read the script and about my character, Dara Kadri, I was awestruck and hesitant at the same time. The character I play in ‘Bambai Meri Jaan’ is something that very few actors get an opportunity to sink their teeth into, this early in their career.

“The way I saw it, there are villains and then there is Dara, a dynamic young man who believes that honest hard work won’t get you money and power. From nothing to something (provider for the family and his people) to everything (power), bhook (hunger) is an integral part of his journey. To become someone everyone bows down to, one who is feared and revered in equal measures, he has to turn into a cold-blooded monster.”
