Gear up for a ride of suspense with London Files on Voot Select
With its exceptional content library of films and shows across genres, which includes some successful original series, Viacom18’s digital offering, Voot Select has emerged as one of the fastest-growing streaming platforms in India. Adding yet another feather in its cap, the platform is all geared up for an exciting addition of an original series, titled London Files, to its distinctive repertoire. Taking the suspense thriller genre to a whole new level, London Files boasts of the two handsome hunks, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli in the lead roles, alongside an ensemble star cast. Spanning across six episodes, the series will take viewers on a spine-chilling journey, rife with edge-of-the-seat drama and suspense. The show is now streaming only on Voot Select!
Set against the backdrop of the United Kingdom, London Files follows the journey of homicide detective Om Singh, played by Arjun Rampal, whose life takes a shocking turn after he reluctantly takes on a missing person’s case in the city of London. Battling his inner demons, Om is forced to take on the case of media baron Amar Roy’s missing daughter. Amar, played by Purab Kohli, is a divisive figure, who backs a draconian anti-immigration bill. As Om embarks on investigating the case, a darker mystery comes pouring out, one that threatens to expose some buried secrets, as well as Om’s repressed past.
The intriguing drama series, directed by Sachin Pathak and produced by Jar Pictures, also features Medha Rana, Gopal Datt, Sapna Pabbi, Adil Zubair, Sagar Arya, Warren Palmer, and Eva Jane Willis in key roles. While the show owes its gripping screenplay to Prateek Payodhi, the fine cinematography is carried out by Arun Kumar Pandey.
Talking about his character in London Files, Arjun Rampal said, “It’s difficult for me to put to words my preparation process. All I would like to say is that Om Singh is a very finely etched character, one that was fantastic to explore and experience as I played him. Sachin has handled all the characters in the show beautifully. He created a very realistic world for all of us. We all became a part of it and it shows. Om was extremely consuming as a character and I enjoyed letting myself get consumed by him. We went out to make something new, I am sure our audiences will experience that, I am very excited to see their reactions.”
Actor Purab Kohli added, “So excited about London Files. And very pleased with the response the trailer has gotten. Also, very glad that people are appreciating my look as Amar Roy. Credit goes to the makeup and styling team that really understood and got the character’s look and
feel bang on. And Prateek’s (Writer) and Sachin’s (Director) vision for Amar definitely needs to be complimented. Amar is a grey character in this suspense thriller. A media mogul with dark secrets from his past, which have the potential to ruin everything he has worked hard for, and he is willing to go to any lengths to ensure that they remain buried. After kickstarting my OTT journey in India with Voot Select’s ‘It’s not that Simple’, I’m very happy to be back on the streaming platform with London Files! And sincerely hope people enjoy the series.”
“While scripting ‘London Files’, I had to emphasize more on the psychology of the cryptic yet astonishing characters. Om Singh will leave you startled and shell-shocked. Detectives are often portrayed as brilliant minds but there’s a method to that superpower. Arjun Sir cracked it exceedingly well. While surveying those blood-curdling sequences, he absorbed every detail. Purab Sir’s character will give you goosebumps. Medha is intriguingly intense. The secretive and aloof Amar triggers you and puts you in a frightening dilemma. Gopal’s intuition and stubbornness is unbeatable. Without revealing much, I can assure that the mystery, terror, and whimsical turn of events will keep the audience hooked. I can’t thank Jar Pictures enough for wonderfully backing this series, along with Voot Select, that is helping viewers plan their binge marathon, giving them a heart-pounding experience." Director Sachin Pathak concludes.
Brace yourselves for an edge-of-the-seat experience with ‘London Files’ as it streams exclusively on Voot Select from 21 st April 2022!
