How does an investigation shape when there are new suspects at every step and no way to find the right ones? Will the criminal be brought to justice, or will the detective spin further into a web of lies? Trailer of the upcoming series ‘The Great Indian Murder’ got released today. To be streamed on Disney+ Hotstar starting February 4, the show stars Richa Chadha, Pratik Gandhi, Ashutosh Rana, Sharib Hashmi, Shashank Arora, Raghubir Yadav, Shashank Arora Paoli Dam, Jatin Goswami, Amey Wagh among others.

The Great Indian Murder takes a murder investigation to the length and breadth of the country on a thrilling ride, leading to an explosive finale. It has been taken from the pages of Vikas Swarup’s riveting novel, Six Suspects, which revolves around the murder of Vicky Rai, son of Home Minister of Chhattisgarh Jagannath Rai. DCP Sudha Bharadwaj, played by Richa Chadha, and Suraj Yadav, a Central Bureau of Investigation officer, played Pratik Gandhi, are tasked with uncovering the mystery surrounding the murder.

Here's the trailer:

‘The Great Indian Murder’ will mark Tigmanshu Dhulia’s third directorial of a Hotstar Specials. It has has been co-written for the screen by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Vijay Maurya and Puneet Sharma.

Describing his experience of directing the series, Tigmanshu Dhulia says, “While working on ‘The Great Indian Murder’, I was taken back to my love for thrillers and murder mysteries. Vikas Swarup’s Six Suspects has been on my list of top thrillers, so envisioning for the screen was doubly exciting for me. The story does an excellent job of blending mystery, murder and fate with a unique storyline. Every character in the series holds the fort with their characteristic individuality that adds to the raw eclectic feel of the series. It is unlike anything I have worked on before. It has been a great journey, and I hope the audience shows The Great Indian Murder much love and appreciation.”

On his association with Disney+ Hotstar, Tigmanshu adds, “Disney+ Hotstar has been creating some path breaking content over the years, so we couldn’t have better partners than them to showcase the show.”

Ajay Devgn, who has produced the show, shares his excitement. He says “Six Suspects, as a book, intrigued and fascinated me greatly. As an ardent fan of thrillers, I am looking forward to The Great Indian Murder as it intricately deals with a common subject like class divide and revenge but with a lot of glamour. Collaborating with Tigmanshu Dhulia to bring alive this exhilarating thriller on screen was an obvious choice, given his phenomenal creation of some of the best thrillers in India. Disney+ Hotstar and I share a strong relationship and I relate to their creative ambition and ability to think big.”

Producer Priti Vinay Sinha says, "It's been an adrenaline filled 3 year journey from the day I acquired the rights of the book from Vikas Swarup to producing ‘The Great Indian Murder’ into a fascinating series with a greatly talented cast and crew. I am really excited to share our web series with the audience. Ajay and I partnering as Producers under our banner ADF & RLE Media for the first time and working with Tigmanshu Dhulia and Disney+ Hotstar has been a dream run."

Actor Richa Chadha who essays DCP Sudha Bhardwaj in the series, tells what pulls her towards thrillers. She says, “Thrillers have always been an exciting genre for me - it challenges you greatly and stretches your capabilities as an actor. When I read the script for The Great Indian Murder, I knew instantly that it was a project I wanted to be a part of. There’s an intriguing story to tell here, and Tigmanshu is a brilliant director who was there for me and for the rest of the cast to guide and direct. Each character in this series has an intense motive and justification for their actions - it is somewhat relatable, yet nerve-wracking. It is an exemplary example of a thriller series writing which only Tigmanshu Dhulia could have pulled off! Can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to it.”

Actor Pratik Gandhi who plays a CBI officer in the series, said, “I wanted to be very thoughtful about my next digital outing and The Great Indian Murder and Disney+ Hostar seemed like the perfect choice. My character Suraj Yadav was a whole new challenge for me. He is someone who represents the law but never shies away from breaking it or mending it to ease his way. This grey layer and his easy transition between the dark and light sides make him special and very human. I am extremely grateful to Tigmanshu Dhulia and Richa Chadha for constantly being by my side and helping me to interpret the character. Hope Suraj Yadav receives a lot of love and appreciation.”
