CAT, a revenge drama series set against the backdrop of the Punjab hinterlands, marks Randeep Hooda’s second venture with Netflix after ‘Extraction’.
Directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua and produced by Movie Tunnel Productions and Jelly Bean Entertainment, ‘CAT’ portrays Randeep Hooda in an undercover spy avatar, who is thrown into a deep drug trafficking conspiracy between gang lords, cops and political powers.
Speaking about ‘CAT’, Randeep Hooda stated: “Working with Netflix is always a pleasure. I had a tremendous time during ‘Extraction’ and the love it got me from around the world was phenomenal. ‘CAT’ again has all the elements to appeal to a global audience. It has given me an opportunity to explore new facets as an actor in a simple but intriguing script. Can’t wait to see the audience reaction to the series.”
Balwinder Singh has written various stories from the perspective of the underbelly of Punjab- like ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, Tera Kya Hoga Lovely’, etc. Being a witness of drug trafficking in Punjab that surged in the early 2000s, Balwinder has always wanted to showcase this timeframe, and with ‘CAT’ he does just that.
Balwinder Singh Janjua had this to say about ‘CAT’: “With the pace at which our industry is releasing content, it’s very easy to be lost in the herd, but with the industry giant like Netflix backing my passion for creating a series with a subject so close to my heart, I feel truly blessed and lucky. And having the opportunity to work with an exceptional artist like Randeep Hooda is the cherry on top.”
