The trailer of SonyLIV’s upcoming original web series Avrodh: The Siege Within is out. The show is based on an account of September 2016’s Uri’s surgical strike and claims to tell the story with utmost truth. Starring Amit Sadh in the lead, the web series is based on a chapter from India’s Most Fearless, a book written by Rahul Singh and Shiv Aroor.
The trailer opens with Neeraj Kabi saying that though every Indian knows about the Uri strike, they do not know the ‘real’ story behind it and how the Indian soldiers managed to bomb their targets. He also says that India is not only the land of the Mahatma but also of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and it’s time the world gets to know that.
I dedicate this to u, Dad. For u & all Indians, I bring to u #Avrodh.
We heard about it, read about it, & saw things, but do we know everything? Was it as simple as it seemed? Or did this require strategic planning, precise execution, & daring decision-making? I was truly amazed! pic.twitter.com/4tz7P1KycJ

Avrodh’s comparisons with Vicky Kaushal’s hit film Uri: The Surgical Strike started ever since the project was announced. However, the series promises to be a different take on the same story. Avrodh also stars Darshan Kumaar, Vikram Gokhale, Anant Mahadevan, Arif Zakaria and Madhurima Tuli, among others. Vikram Gokhale will be seen in the role of the Prime Minister, while Neeraj will be seen as NSA Shailesh Malviya.
Avrodh will begin streaming on SonyLIV from July 31. Watch the trailer below:
