Director and actor, Sudhanshu Rai said:
“Detective Boomrah is a character that I created years back and has ever since been loved by my audience. Unlike other iconic detective characters, he is not bound by geographical, celestial or reality constraints, rather he sees beyond what others even fail to notice.”
“The content and concept is not something seen on Indian screens before. We are confident of meeting the expectations of audience and fans with the efforts that we have put in.”
Director of Saints Art, Puneet Sharma said:
“Detective Boomrah as a fictional character fills the gap of contemporary detectives in literary or motion arts. Almost all the characters we see are classical, made to fit into the contemporary, but it is for the first time that the audience would get acquainted with a detective that is modern and a kind of content that is extremely intriguing and entertaining at the same time.”
Sudhanshu Rai and Puneet Sharma co-produced the web series. Anant Rai serves as the co-director and creative producer.
