As reported earlier by us, Prakash Raj is making his OTT debut with Mukhbir: The Story of A Spy. The series tells the story of an Indian secret agent in Pakistan who played an important role in the 1965 war.

Prakash Raj plays Bhagat, an Intelligence Bureau officer who trains secret agents. On being part of the series, he says, "OTT platforms have opened up so many opportunities. There are a dozen scripts I want to explore. Having said that I look forward to roles where I would be relevant and only then choose to associate in that space."

On making debut with Mukhbir, he says: "This is a very fresh script that circles around the journey of a spy and very magically picturises the '60s, the era of Shastri ji (late Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri), when I was not even born, and our country was an unknown territory. The humanness and the way heroes shine in the script from unexpected unseen situations is a surprise. I like how the story unfolds."

When asked about the USP of the show, he shares: "I think Mukhbir's USP is that it's a slice-of-life series. It is real. It makes you experience something you have never seen or heard before, and that's the beauty of it. Few shows leave that impact on you. You feel like it is your story, you are there in every space, and its sole purpose is much more beyond entertainment. It is rejuvenating. It opens your eyes to a new world and takes your mind the historic period. It is a different feeling. Mukhbir holds your hand and takes you through those dramas and dilemmas that space the country has been through."

Directed by Shivam Nair and Jayprad Desai, Mukhbir streams on ZEE5.
