With the upcoming vengeance drama CAT, Randeep Hooda will be seen bringing his vast and diversified acting abilities to a series for the first time. After his performance in the film Extraction, Randeep returns to Netflix with this series. The actor will play the lead in this vengeance drama series, which is produced by Movie Tunnel Productions in collaboration with Jelly Bean Entertainment.
Showrunner Balwinder Singh Janjua directs CAT, which is co-directed by Rupinder Chahal and Anutej Singh. CAT is a crime thriller set in the Punjab hinterlands and tells the storey of an innocent guy. He is thrust into a complex drug-trafficking scheme involving gangsters, cops, and political figures.
Speaking about his second venture with Netflix and the show CAT, Randeep Hooda said, “Working with Netflix is always a pleasure. I had a tremendous time during Extraction and the love it got me from around the world was phenomenal. CAT again has all the elements to appeal to a global audience. It has given me an opportunity to explore new facets as an actor in a simple but intriguing script. Can’t wait to see the audience reaction to the series.”
Balwinder Singh Janjua turns gears with his next directorial endeavour after writing movies like Saand Ki Aankh as well as Mubarakan. After completing Tera Kya Hoga Lovely, a social romantic comedy with Randeep, the two teamed up once more to tell stories from Punjab’s underbelly. Balwinder has also always wanted to portray this historical period, having been raised throughout a turbulent period and seen the rise of drug trafficking inside the early 2000s, and with CAT he achieves exactly that.
Talking about associating with Netflix and Randeep Hooda for CAT, Balwinder Singh Janjua said, “With the pace at which our industry is releasing content, it’s very easy to be lost in the herd, but with the industry giant like Netflix backing my passion for creating a series with a subject so close to my heart, I feel truly blessed and lucky. And having the opportunity to work with an exceptional artist like Randeep Hooda is the cherry on top.”
