Disney+Hotstar has shared the trailer for a new extraction based series, The Freelancer. Neeraj Pandey, is the creator and showrunner and Bhav Dhulia has directed the series. Mohit Raina plays the titular character, whose real name is Avinash Kamath.
The trailer opens with a young girl, Aliya (Kashmira Pardeshi) running frantically through narrow streets before she is hit by a car. Her father Inayat Khan (Sushant Singh) who has been trying to find his daughter, is gunned down after he seemingly poses a threat.
The trailer reveals that she has been taken to Syria by her new husband under the pretext of going on their honeymoon. Kamath, who the trailer calls a mercenary, has promised Khan in the past to keep his wife and daughter safe.
Sharing his thoughts about his character Raina said “The Freelancer is a story that touched my heart in several ways. Playing Avinash Kamath was challenging yet creatively satisfying.
The Freelancer, based on the book, 'A Ticket to Syria' by Shirish Thorat, is produced by Friday Storytellers.The show will stream on Disney+Hotstar from September 1.
