While it has been challenging, the role of Meenakshi Iyer has truly been enriching for me as an actor, undergoing countless hours of preparation to be able to do justice to not only the character but also the riveting story. P.I. Meena is very different from what I have done in the past. Her determination to fight for what’s right, her emotional overdrive and the nuances of her persona are what convinced me to not miss on the opportunity to play her. The trailer is only a glimpse of the story that will take the audience for a rollercoaster ride when they watch the series and enjoy the captivating performances, the mastery in direction of Debaloy, and the perfectly crafted story, keeping them hooked till the very end.”
“I am an avid fan of the crime-investigative genre. But P.I.

It’s the kind of content I thoroughly enjoy being a part of, and I am sure by the end the audience will been extremely satisfied with a worthwhile experience for their time spent watching the series,” said Parambrata Chatterjee.
“Playing intense characters has been one of the many joys of my acting career. And when I first got the script for P.I. Meena, I just knew that Dr. Rakhaw will be one more memorable role for me to enjoy playing and fondly remember even years down the road. The story, and the vision of the director for this series is what had me convinced that I must be a part of this extremely detailed and elaborate investigative crime-drama,” added Jisshu Sengupta.
