In this series, Saurabh will bring life to the character of mafia don Haji Maqbool, sharing the screen with actors like Kay Kay Menon, Avinash Tiwary, Kritika Kamra, and Amyra Dastur, under the brilliant direction of Shujaat Saudagar.

Sharing about his character, he tells us, "I was genuinely enthused by the role due to the character's captivating trajectory. His delusions of grandeur and belief in his absolute control make for a compelling narrative. Witnessing the transformation and evolution of his persona promises to be an exhilarating experience. It is fascinating to observe the disintegration of his ego and the subsequent redirection of his path. He prioritizes solely professional connections, disregarding any emotional entanglements. The character's unwavering self-reliance adds to his commanding presence. Undoubtedly, it is a role that exudes power and authority."

Talking about how he prepped for the character, he mentions, "The director selected me for this role based on the strength of my commanding voice. Undoubtedly, there were some challenges in aligning our visions for the character. While he envisioned a poised, composed, dignified persona, I initially aimed for a more extravagant interpretation. However, the director advised me to blend all the desired qualities together. Additionally, we conducted workshops and readings that greatly assisted me in preparing for this role."

Further, on sharing about his working experience in the show, he adds, "Initially, I faced challenges because director Shujaat is a task master and our visions didn't align. However, the lockdown provided us with an opportunity to dedicate time towards refining the character. When we resumed filming, we found ourselves in sync with each other's energy levels. From the beginning, my director and I have had a complex yet engaging relationship that added a dynamic element to our collaboration."

Describing his working experience with his co actors in the series, he states, "Kay Kay sir is widely recognized as an exceptional actor, renowned for his outstanding performances. Having known Avinash for a considerable period since his time as my student in 2015, I have witnessed his remarkable journey unfold. He has emerged as a highly skilled actor, garnering immense praise. Throughout our shared scenes, where our characters engage in intense face-to-face interactions, Avinash consistently displayed confidence and never appeared intimidated by the fact that I was his teacher. His portrayal was flawless, effectively complimenting my character. The dynamic between us displayed a strong sense of power dynamics."

Speaking about the show's USP he says, "The writing style and direction of the content is truly remarkable, serving as its unique selling point. While it may appear to be a gangster drama, it actually delves into the dynamics of a family. The exceptional style and cinematography employed will effectively transport audiences to a different era, leaving a lasting impression."

‘Bambai Meri Jaan’ will be released on September 14, 2023.
