Talking about Grahan, Malhotra said in a statement:
“An innocent love story, a riveting mystery, a complex web of emotions, but most importantly Grahan is the search for the truth. I have been fortunate enough to be a part of many movies and TV shows in my career, but this one is really special to me because of its strong narrative.
“The question is – what secret is my character Gursevak hiding from the rest of the world? It’s a well-made series and I think viewers will appreciate the story we have tried to weave.”
