This time, he has turned into a cop. I am talking about an upcoming crime drama TV series, Kaalkoot. Speaking of which, the trailer of Vijay Varma’s series, Kaalkoot, was recently released on the Internet. And the series looks quite intriguing.

“Pichle teen mahino mein maine jo kuch bhi is thaane mein hote hue dekha hai, usse dekh kar aage naukri ki ichcha juta nahin pa raha hoon…” he says in the video.

However, his resignation letter is rejected and his senior sends him back to investigate an acid attack case.
