This web series is the Hindi adaptation of the hit Swedish show The Bridge. The story of the show takes place after a dead body is found at the border. Half of the dead person’s body is in one country and the other half is inside the border of another country. The agencies of both countries get involved in the joint investigation. Because of this, the spies of both countries have to work together.

Waiting for such opportunities – Saif

Saif Ali Khan said about the show – Everyone waits for such an opportunity as an actor and producer. The story has been adapted across the world and has been loved by the audience. My team is very excited about this.

Meanwhile, Rishi Negi, CEO, of Endemol Shine India, said, “The script of Bridge is strong as it is a story that audiences across the world will enjoy. It is a global story that can be remade exclusively in their language.” Let me tell you, the series showing the tension between the two countries has been remade in seven countries.

The crime series is produced by Hans Rosenfeldt and written by Camilla Ahlgren. The series starred Sofia Rinne, Kim Bodnia, and Thure Lindhardt. The Bridge is available on Amazon Prime Video.

Saif is one of those actors in Hindi cinema who understood the importance of OTT many years ago and became a part of Netflix’s first India Original Sacred Games. After this, Saif also played the lead role in Prime Video’s series Tandav.
