As per the present storyline, the CID team is under severe threat after the kidnap of Dr. Sonali (Manini Mihir Mishra), Dr. Tarika and officer Kajal (Jassveer Kaur). To make matter worse, the team has got the charred body of their officer Freddy.
Tellybuzz reported earlier that the CID team will soon fly to Paris to unmask the bad guy. Sony and Fireworks Production's were on the lookout for a big name from Bollywood to play the pivotal role of the bad man. Our source tells us, "Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff, Kabir Bedi and many others were approached. Mahesh who has had a past association with the channel in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa was the first choice. Though the actor had some date problems, he has apparently given his nod to be part of the show".
We tried calling Mahesh and even sent him a text message, but we did not get any response. When Telly Buzz reached out to Danish Khan, Marketing Head, Sony, he informed us that "We will be able to confirm on the name latter today".
The CID team must be excited to welcome Mahesh on its sets in Paris. Here's wishing all the best to the CID team for its upcoming episode with this international don!
