After delivering two hit seasons of its much-loved crime thriller series featuring Saqib Saleem, ZEE5 has now announced another season of Rangbaaz – this time featuring Vineet Kumar Singh and Akanksha Singh in lead roles. Written by Siddharth Mishra, directed by Sachin Pathak and produced by JAR Pictures, ‘Rangbaaz – Darr Ki Rajithani’ is directed by Navdeep Singh, who has directed NH10 and Manorama Six Feet Under.
The season centers around Vineet’s character, Haroon Shah Ali Baig (also known as Saheb) and traces his rise from a small town in Bihar to the mightiest of all. As he gains power and wealth through his adventures, he also spends his resources helping people. His image as a Robin Hood type character begins to strengthen and he begins to feel accepted and validated. However, does he confuse fear for respect? This rise and fall of the Saheb marks his journey from a distorted idealism to a manipulative cynic.
Sharing his thoughts on the new series, Navdeep Singh said, “I have been a fan of the old season of Rangbaaz as this dark world of gangster politics attracts me. So, I was excited to be a part of this season and craft a new character with different shades of good and bad. ‘Rangbaaz – Darr Ki Politics’ unravels the epic life and times of Saheb, as well as depicts the story and the politics of Bihar as the two are shown to be woven together. For ‘Rajneeti’ lovers, this is the show you were eagerly waiting for! I hope the audience enjoys this display of power and politics as we have tried to keep it as real as possible.”
The 6-episode series also stars Geetanjali Kulkarni, Sudhanva Deshpande, Ashok Pathak, Soham Majumdar, Prashant Narayanan and others in pivotal roles.
Manish Kalra, HeadOfficer, ZEE5 Said, “After the success of the Rangbaaz franchise, we are happy to bring to our viewers yet another interesting season of ‘Rangbaaz-Dar Ki Rajithani’. Rangbaaz is full of drama, politics, corruption, crime and power games and has a story that will appeal to the audience. We are delighted to work with the talented crew of Rangbaaz and look forward to another successful run with them.
Nimisha Pandey, Chief Content Officer – Hindi Originals, ZEE5 said, “Rangbaaz has been one of the most successful franchises of ZEE5, and we are extremely proud to present the third season of this acclaimed show.
