The response from the audience prompted this journey to begin. We are starting with a unique special Ops 1.5; Which is neither a prequel nor a sequel and with this, the audience will get to see the backstory of the main hero Himmat Singh! The series will begin with another case being handed over to Himmat Singh, but the deflection point is the same Parliament attack that started the chain of events. It will be told during 3 episodes which will be about an hour. “

As an actor, I try to do different things, and being part of a new universe is very exciting. “
