Bollywood actors Radhika and Nawazuddin have already been on digital space before but both Saif Ali Khan and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap are making debut in digital space with this series.

Saif told PTI, “Vikramaditya Motwane is comparing us to House of Cards. It is going to be the best show coming out of India and I am hopeful everyone will be proud of it.”
