The new season of ZEE5 and ALTBalaji’s web series ‘The Test Case’ will be led by Harleen Sethi as an army officer named Major Zoya Ali.
Talking about her role in season 2, Sethi said in an Instagram post:
“For all those who have been waiting to see me in action (“action” being the key word), here I am!! Rarely as a female actor you get a chance to portray strong and fierce characters rooted in patriotism, fearlessness and love for the country and this is the closest I could come to being and feeling one with the Armed Forces.
Proud to be an Indian daughter and honoured to wear the uniform as MAJOR ZOYA ALI in the second season of one of my fav shows “The Test Case”. Also remembering the bravehearts, our unsung heroes today who gave up their precious lives so we could enjoy this precious freedom. No amount of gratitude is enough 🙏🏼🇮🇳 Jai Hind! Happy 74th Independence Day.”
The first season, consisting of 10 episodes, revolved around Captain Shikha Sharma (played by Nimrat Kaur), the first woman to get enrolled in the Indian Army’s Special Forces unit and the gender bias she faced.
The cast of The Test Case also featured Juhi Chawla, Rahul Dev, Atul Kulkarni, Suhail Nayyar, Manit Joura, Samir Kocchar and Annup Sonii.
The announcement comes right after the streaming platform won big at Inkspell’s The Decade Awards, bagging awards in seven different categories.
