Kissen dons new role

Ravi Kissen has jumped on to the social justice bandwagon by deciding to anchor a crime reality show on a Bihar-Jharkhand private television channel. The programme aims to prevent crime through public awareness.

Citing the example of the recent Delhi gang rape case, Kissen told The Telegraph: “Crime plagues every society. We have to take the initiative to spread awareness through Police Files to prevent such crime. We have to educate people and make them understand that crime is not the right way to achieve anything. This show would surely send a positive message to people.”

“Being in Bhojpuri, the serial will hold a natural edge. The episodes will portray real crime stories from Bihar and Jharkhand. The reason behind accepting the anchor’s role is that all the stories in the show will have a real touch. It will be shot in different parts of Bihar,” said Kissen.

The shoots for the series would start in 15 days and the show would go on-air by the last week of January.

Unveiling the Bihar-Jharkhand arm of the private channel at P&M Mall on Friday, Kissen said: “We all talk about crime but never think why it happens. It all starts from the parents’ upbringing, the first lesson has to be taught by the parents. This show would not only focus on crime stories but would also talk about their remedies. It will also have the stories of brave people who have saved lives of others.”

Asked about possible competition from other crime shows like CID and Crime Patrol, Kissen said: “I do not think that there would be any competition with other such shows. This show relates to people from our region and the characters on this show would be only from Bihar and Jharkhand, not from any other state.”
