Manav Vij is all set to entertain the viewers with his upcoming show Gaanth Chapter 1: Jamnaa Paar which is directed by Kanishk Verma, and also features Monica Panwar and Saloni Batra in a key role. The series takes viewers to the eerie streets of East Delhi, where a bizarre case of mass suicide captures both media and police attention. Manav Vij, who is reprising the role of a 40-year-old disgraced cop, Gadar Singh, opens up about his experience working with the cast of the web-series and shares behind-the-scenes moments that made him emotional during the shoot.

While speaking about a memorable incident with his co-stars and the production team, Manav Vij said, "I remember a time during our workshops, when my fellow actors were dedicated to learning and remembering every line. Watching them pushed me to do the same, making them inspiring teachers in a way. One of the most memorable scenes for me was eating cake while crying. The team went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable, creating an experience I'll never forget. As an actor, some memories stay with you forever and this is one of them."

He further concluded by adding, “Cinema is a team effort, and bonding with co-stars and the crew is crucial. Being a people’s person has always helped me as I made an effort to connect with everyone, whether through sharing meals, participating in workshops, or having genuine conversations. This created a sense of unity and trust, making the sets a more enjoyable and productive place.”

Speaking of the show, Vij as the 40-year-old disgraced Police Inspector Gadar Singh takes charge of the gritty murder cases as he is determined to get to the root of the crime and find the truth. The mystery deepens with the introduction of a psychiatric intern Sakshi Murmu (played by Monika Panwar), who possesses a unique gift for perceiving patterns invisible to the human eye. Singh and Murmu form an unlikely partnership to unravel the mystery of the peculiar crime scene- seven bodies hanging from seven ropes in a cramped, hazy corner of a house. While the world perceives the situation differently, these two sleuths, in their quest for the truth, uncover a crypt buried in the past, leading them deeper into a web of crimes spanning decades. Together they uncover layers of the case intertwined with media sensationalism, religious beliefs, superstitions, and social psychosis.

Gaanth will be streaming exclusively on JioCinema Premium from June 11 onwards.
