Ranneeti: Balakot & Beyond Trailer: Jimmy Shergill and Lara Dutta’s New Series Showcases India’s Historic Tale of Modern Warfare

Lara Dutta and Jimmy Shergill’s Ranneeti: Balakot and Beyond is out. The trailer shows Lara and Jimmy as intelligence officers and politicians.

The series is inspired by the real life events that shook the nation. Jio cinema said in a press release, the show takes the viewers behind the scene6of India’s largest defence operation.

The makers have shared that, “decodes the modern warfare that isn’t simply fought on physical borders but transcends to the domain of social media, digital tactics and covert political moves that have the power to reshape geo-politics.”

Jimmy Shergill said, “This is unlike any role that I have done in the past. It has been challenging to say the least but also immensely satisfying to be part of India’s first war-room focused web-series inspired from real life events that shook the nation. We always read or hear about what happens on-ground during a war-like situation but being a part of Ranneeti allowed me to witness first-hand the strategy, the risk-taking, as well as the emotional trajectory of those who call the shots from inside the war-room.”

“I remember an especially difficult schedule when the entire unit worked for 48 hours with no breaks but not a single cast member complained. We were on no-sleep but the adrenaline rush kept us going and how. It felt like we were right there in the middle of all the action.” He added.

Lara Dutta shared about the shooting experience and said, “The urgency, the split-second decision making and the pressure in a war-room is unlike any other. As actors, being able to translate those emotions in an honest and authentic manner is a tough task. However, when you work with a brilliant team like that of Ranneeti, you grow tremendously as an actor with every single scene and dialogue delivery. Being from an air-force background, working on the show felt close to home. We cannot wait for the audience to experience national pride the way we did, every single day on the set!”

Ranneeti: Balakot & Beyond will be released on JioCinems on April 25. The series also stars Ashutosh Rana and Ashish Vidyarthi. The series is helmed by Santosh Singh and is produced by Sunjoy Waddhwa and Comall Sunjay W from Sphere Origind Multivision Private Limited.
