“Mukhbir is the untold story of a spy who defied the odds and single-handedly enabled India to evade several aggressive advances from the enemy country during the 1965 war. The story speaks of a time when there were barely any advanced gadgets or technology, and espionage meant physically infiltrating the enemy lines, at a time when the rules of spy craft were not even written. Espionage dramas have been high on the audiences’ watch-list for its adventure and thrill coupled with a relatable and humane story of an individual. With Mukhbir, we intend to take viewers on a journey, by narrating a human story of a spy as well as showcasing important events set in the India of early 60s. We are glad to associate with Victor Tango Productions for this riveting story, directed by Shivam Nair bringing out an enthralling performance by the talented star-cast. We are furthermore delighted to announce this show on India’s 75th Independence Day and are confident that this new series from ZEE5 will be relatable to every viewer, making them proud of our nation and our heroes.”
