Actress Sonali Bendre is all set to make her OTT debut with ZEE5 Original The Broken News. Making her much-awaited comeback, the actress has donned an impressive avatar as a journalist in the web series. Based on the popular British series The Press, the web series dives into corruption and politics existing in the media world and engages the audience with facts and behind-the-scenes on how news stories are made.

With excellent direction from ace Vinay Waikul and featuring a talented star cast of Sonali Bendre, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Shriya Pilgaonkar, the series gives a dramatic take on the reality of the news world. Set to release on June 10th on ZEE5, the show sees a tug of war between two journalists of rival news channels having opposing principles. Journalist and editor-in-chief Amina Quereshi working with Bharati Channel believes in delivering facts and wants to make the news channel a credible source of information. On the other hand, Jaideep Ahlawat’s nuanced character, Dipankar Sanyal, of Josh 24/7 believes in selling sensational news stories. As the two rivals begin to compete, the show takes a darker and more dramatic turn. Watch new movies on ZEE5.

Produced by BBC Studios, the trailer of the series was launched on May 27th and has received much appreciation for its brave concept and engaging narrative. By tackling the real-world challenge of ethical journalism, the show also sees the struggles of a young journalist, played by Shriya Pilgoankar, to find a balance between the two ends of extreme ideologies. It also dives deep into how the pressure of delivering never-ending ‘Breaking news’ can take a toll on journalists and lead to bad politics.

In a statement, Sonali Bendre commented that she was hooked to the British series Press and could not have gotten a better opportunity to make her debut in the OTT world than with The Broken News.
