Sonali Bendre to make her digital debut with ‘The Broken News’

Mumbai, May 12: Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre will be soon making her digital debut with ‘The Broken News’, which is an Indian adaptation of the popular British series ‘Press’. This is the first time Sonali will face the camera after recuperating from metastatic cancer, which she was diagnosed for in 2018. The series, directed by Vinay Waikul, will also star Jaideep Ahlawat, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana and Kiran Kumar.

The plot of the show features two rival news channels based in Mumbai – Awaaz Bharati, an independent, ethical news channel, and Josh 24/7 News, which offers sensationalist and invasive journalism, and what transpires between the main characters in their quest for news.

The original UK series ‘Press’, was created and written by award-winning writer Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, King Charles III), and is a Lookout Point, BBC Studios and Deep Indigo production, co-produced with Masterpiece. It aired on both BBC One in the UK and on PBS Masterpiece in the US in 2018, with the original series set in a print newsroom rather than a TV newsroom. Taking a different approach, the release of ‘The Broken News’ will be announced in the prime-time slot across different news channels on Wednesday.
