“Kunwar Singh, is commander of Veer Sena in Bihar, (whose sole purpose is to)to fight, kill and dominate over the backward classes socially. He is a person who truly believes and supports casteism, discrimination and has no tolerance for the backward classes, treating them as untouchables,” he says.

The show stars Huma Qureshi in the lead role, with whom Pandey has worked with previously in the comedy film ‘Jolly LLB’. The show also stars Soham Shah and Amit Sial in pivotal roles.

"I think when any actor prepares for the part, they take different kind of methods or ways. But, the most important which I believe is how truthful I'm for that particular character and situation. I feel really blessed that I'm part of some very good stories which I have done. Of course, it took some time but I'm getting good stories and good part, so I'm really overwhelmed," he says.
