Mohit Raina who will be seen as the lead in Neeraj Pandey's riveting thriller series The Freelancer, has heaped praise on his co-star Anupam Kher, and said that he feels lucky to get the opportunity to work with him.

"Though Anupam sir is a legend for actors like me, he doesn't like to be called one,” Raina said in an interview recently. “Getting to work with him is obviously a great opportunity, I feel lucky. You always learn from a senior even just by observing them."

The series is based on the book - 'A Ticket to Syria' by Shirish Thorat. The book attempts to share the story about the insidious operations of the Islamic State, and how the terror group has perfected a cross-country operation that converts thousands to a depraved cause.

Produced by Friday Storytellers, Pandey is the creator and showrunner. The Freelancer is about an extraction mission where a girl is held captive in the war-torn environment of Syria, and her escape from the world of death.

Set to release on September 1, on Disney+ Hotstar, The Freelancer also features Sushant Singh, John Kokken, Gauri Balaji and Navneet Malik, Manjiri Faddnis, Sarah Jane Dias amongst others in pivotal roles.
